The improved result was due to lower electricity purchase costs due to the reduction in the difference settlement price, the greater availability of electricity for commercialization, due to the recovery of the peg, and the increase in fixed revenue from auctions, as well as higher electricity exports. Other contributory factors included the conclusion of infrastructure projects, which facilitated gas production outflow, thereby avoiding the failure-to-supply penalties incurred in the 1H-2008.
These effects were partially offset by reduced thermal power output due to higher hydroelectric reservoir levels and lower gas sales volume.
The quarter-over-quarter result recorded an upturn due to higher electricity sales/generation margins generated by the reduction in spot market acquisition costs, increased export volume and lower gas import costs.
These effects were partially offset by the reduction in the average gas sales price.
