1. When was Edenor incorporated?
Edenor was incorporated as an Argentine limited liability corporation (sociedad anónima) on July 21, 1992 under the name Empresa Distribuidora Norte Sociedad Anónima. We were incorporated as part of the privatization of the Argentine state-owned electricity utility, Servicios Eléctricos del Gran Buenos Aires S.A. (SEGBA). In anticipation of its privatization, SEGBA was divided into three electricity distribution companies, including our company, and four electricity generation companies, and on May 14, 1992, the Argentine Ministry of Economy and Public Works and Utilities approved the public sale of all of our company's Class A shares, representing 51% of the capital stock of our company.

8. Why are "tariffs" considered so important to Edenor?
Our revenues and margins are substantially dependent on the composition of our tariffs and on the tariff setting and adjustment process contemplated by our concession. We generally pass through to our customers the cost of our energy purchases and charge them a regulated distribution margin, or value-added for distribution (VAD), which is intended to cover our distribution costs (including depreciation and taxes) and provide us an adequate return on our asset base.

We bill our customers based on their category of service. Residential and small commercial customers are billed a fixed charge payable bimonthly and a variable charge based on each unit of energy consumed.

  • Tariff 1-R3: bimonthly energy demand greater than 651 kWh and less than 800 kWh.
  • Tariff 1-R4: bimonthly energy demand greater than 801 kWh and less than 900 kWh.
  • Tariff 1-R5: bimonthly energy demand greater than 901 kWh and less than 1000 kWh.
  • Tariff 1-R6: bimonthly energy demand greater than 1001 kWh and less than 1200 kWh.
  • Tariff 1-R7: bimonthly energy demand greater than 1200 kWh.

Small commercial (Tariff 1-G):
  • Tariff 1-G1: bimonthly energy demand less than or equal to 1600 kWh.

    or equal to 4000 kWh.
  • Tariff 1-G3: bimonthly energy demand greater than 4000 kWh.
Medium commercial customers (Tariff T2) are billed a fixed charge based on a fixed amount of capacity that is payable monthly and a variable charge based on each unit of energy consumed above that level.

Industrial customers (Tariff T3) are billed two monthly fixed charges based on capacity during peak hours and non-peak hours and three variable charges for each unit of energy consumed.

Public lighting customers are billed a monthly variable energy charge based on each unit of energy consumed.
