Following the announcement of the Ecuadorian regime to replace, by 2016, the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) for electricity of Ecuadorian kitchen homes. This is part of the plan to remove the gas subsidy that has already been experienced in the The parishes of Carchi as Chical Tufino, Urbina, Carmel and Julio Andrade.
It was in 2012, that the regime, through the Ministry of Electricity and Renewable Energy (MEER), gave more than 3000 electric induction stovetop kitchens in order to reduce the smuggling of LPG, which commonly occurred in the northern border.
Carchi District administrator, Wilson Rosero, of Emelnorte electric company, said last year nearly 3000 induction kitchens were delivered to the most vulnerable groups.
For his part, Minister of Electricity, Esteban Albornoz, said yesterday that the main idea is that citizens do not pay more than what they spent when cooking with gas.
