QCOSTARICA – Starting in 2021, the electricity sold by the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) will have different residential rates depending on the hours it is used.

Variabale rates are possible with the use of smart meters. These meters record consumption in the hours in which it occurs.

Starting January 1, 2021, there will be two “peak hours”: from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, when it is best to use as little electrical energy as possible, as the rate will be¢131.90 colones per kilowatt-hour.

Currently, only the Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz (CNFL), an ICE subsidiary, has this rate available to residential customers.
