Why should the power bill be fixed?

Why should the power bill be fixed?

The prevailing trend, worldwide, is to make the power matrix of the countries renewable.

Essentially hydraulic, wind, solar sources in which the most important cost item is the amortization of capital expenditure (CAPEX).

Fuel-powered plants such as coal, oil and gas will only be used to compensate for the intermittency of renewable sources and will represent a small portion of the energy matrix.

Thus, the bulk of the electricity sector value chain cost is fixed in $/kW of installed capacity.

To reflect this reality for energy consuming customers, is to bring transparency and simplicity.

Bottom line: consumers should receive a fixed monthly bill associated with the capacity they require from the public network.
