Bar a decrease for the residents in Los Santos in Southern San José, all households will see their energy bills go up in July, with customers of ICE bearing the brunt, with a percentage rise of 5.49%.

ARESEP reasoned that because the providers had to use bunker and diesel powered plants during the past quarter to cover the increase of energy demand of 6.6 percent, the higher rates were necessary.
