The variable cost of fuel is applied quarterly. The Aresep has projected that electrical rates increase during the first two quarters of the year and decline in the third and fourth.

Costa Rica relies on hydroelectric generation during the rainy season, increasing the use of carbon fuels to generate power during the dry season.

The rise in electrical rates follows an increase in fuel prices of ¢24 and ¢28 colones per litre approved by the Aresep on Monday.

Both increases have to be published in La Gaceta, which is expected in the coming days, before they can take effect.
