El proyecto de "ley corta" de electricidad propone importantes modificaciones a la actual regulación de la transmisión eléctrica en Chile. En este artículo desarrollamos un modelo simple para analizar dos de las propuestas centrales del proyecto: (i) el traspaso directo de parte de los costos de transmisión a los consumidores, y (ii) la planificación centralizada de la expansión de la transmisión. En base a los resultados del modelo, encontramos que el traspaso de costo representa un retroceso respecto de lo que hoy existe ya que debilita las señales de localización de generadores y consumidores y empeora los incentivos a la expansión de la transmisión sin lograr ventajas compensatorias. Aunque su definición requiere de mayor estudio, creemos sin embargo, que el regulador tiene un rol en la planificación de la expansión de la transmisión. En el artículo también se discute una tarificación alternativa (de dos partes), la cual incluye un cargo fijo de conexión a los consumidores.
