Because in the following months they will begin to remove subsidies both in electricity, gas and water, it is expected that vulnerable populations, that is, those who are below the poverty line, will not be able to afford the costs of these services.
Only in the case of the electricity rate, it removes it from subsidies It will be given in three installments of 20%. so this aid It will practically collapse.
The government will go looking for those who have not managed, for different reasons, to register in the RASE registry for energy tariff segmentation. This initiative to deliver subsidies Its purpose is to ensure access to energy for the most vulnerable sectors.
It is estimated that, throughout the country, five million households (corresponds to 15 million people) are the ones that have yet to sign up for the program and in turn it is ensured that said removal from the goverment help will have great political and social repercussions, which could worsen in the face of the next elections 2023.
In order to to “evaluate joint actions in the implementation of the segmentation of electricity rates in the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (AMBA) and the interior of the province”.
Statement by Martello and Ghioni
Martello clarified: “the joint work between the ENRE, the province and OCEBA is essential to carry out coordinated policies, with territorial deployment, to ensure that the subsidies continue to reach vulnerable sectors and all users who need it”.
On the other hand, but in the same sense, Ghioni sharpened: “For Buenos Aires, the joint work with the ENRE is not only important; It is essential, because 60% of Buenos Aires users of the electricity service are in the area of national jurisdiction. The broad work agenda includes the implementation of the segmentation policy, and the need to guarantee as a whole that the users and beneficiaries of subsidies be identified.”
