This is just beyond ridiculous.
If you use more than 1000 KW every two months ( 500KW a month!) , as a “sanction”, you get to pay 300% , 400% and even 1000% more of what you paid the month before.
Some people today waiting in line to complain, had bills of up to 2400 Pesos, ( 3,6 pesos, one USD) This is the power bill for an average home with 2 air conditioners.
Take into account that an average salary here is 1500 pesos, you can imagine what this means.
This is no accident. These are the real prices they are handling now. This was approved by our no longer so benevolent K dictators, so they can steal even more money from us.
The idea explained by the government, is that they are “punishing” those that use too much power. But they seem to forget that during summer and winter even a small apartment will fall within their penalty category.
They are kind enough to give you 6 to 12 months to finance the power bills. Guess that after two or three months you just kill yourself.
As they said in “300” : This is Madness!
“No, this is Argentina!”
