The electricity market was expected to grow gradually since its inception and it will become increasingly open as it matures. The market is designed to stimulate competition so it operates under a model where cheaper energy is sold first, favoring models and technologies that generate energy at lower costs. In the long term we believe that these models will bring electricity costs down through the incorporation of new technologies and the displacement of older plants. Competitivity will generate incentives to improve services or to lower costs, but this is a market process and thus the determination of costs is not under control of any regulatory entity. It will also cause electricity prices to fluctuate depending on demand during the year. In periods when there is significant demand, prices will rise and vice versa.
