Análisis de la Tarificación por Sobre-consumo de los Sectores Eléctrico y Sanitario

Este artículo analiza para el caso de Chile los efectos sobre la asignación de recursos de la aplicación de esquemas de tarifas por sobre-consumo en los períodos de alta demanda, en los sectores eléctrico y sanitario. A partir del análisis de las estructuras tarifarias de los mencionados sectores, se concluye que en principio las tarifas corresponden estrictamente al esquema peak load pricing, conducente a resultados eficientes desde la perspectiva de la asignación de recursos. No obstante, la incorporación de límites arbitrarios a los consumos de referencia para efectos de definir el sobre-consumo, determina la presencia de distorsiones en el equilibrio socialmente óptimo. Lo anterior, sin perjuicio de las bondades redistributivas que dichos límites pudiesen implicar.
