What are Territorial Supplements? The Territorial Supplements are a fee that covers the amount of each regional tax set in 2013. The income obtained will be destined to the Electric Companies that assumed the payment of the regional taxes in 2013. The electric energy access tolls are part of the price of electricity, and are intended to cover different cost items in the electricity sector with regulated remuneration. Among others, they cover the cost of the activities of networks (transport and distribution of electric energy) and production from renewable energy sources, cogeneration and waste with primacy. Who does the payment correspond to? The territorial supplement may change according to the Autonomous Community, and its cost will depend on the rate and power contracted and the consumption made in 2013. There are also distinctions between the domestic consumer and the main industries. How is the amount to be billed calculated? The calculation thereof, and where appropriate the fractionation indicated in this section, corresponding to each of the concepts of regularization will correspond to the Distributor.
