In Colombia, thanks to laws 142 and 143 of 1994, the regulatory framework was defined and drawn up to develop the electric power market. The agents that make up the market are part of four activities: Generation, Transmission, Distribution and Supply.
This separation of activities allowed free access and competition, especially in Generations and Supply activities, allowing users to choose the latter.
According to CREG resolution 131 of 1998, users are classified as:
CU ($/kWh) = G + T + D + C + PR + R
CU: Unit Cost ($/kWh)
