WACC rate of return

In 2019 the Authority updated the Integrated Text for the calculation and updating of the rate of return of investments in electricity and gas infrastructure for the period 2016-2021 (TIWACC). Indeed, Resolution no. 570/2019/R/gas confirms the rate of return on gas distribution at 6.3% until 2021 and aligns the rate of gas metering with that of distribution in the years 2020-2021, reducing it by 0.5% (from 6.8% in 2019 to 6.3%).
