ARTICLE 1: Attract the character of public service to the activity of distribution of electric energy because of its condition as a natural monopoly. Its regulation should be the setting of rates to be applied and the quality control of service delivery.

Characterize transport activity as a public service by its monopoly nature. However, it shares the market's own rules for the particularities it presents in its expansion. Such conditions should be taken into account by the SECRETARIAT OF ELECTRIC ENERGY in establishing the specific regulation of such activity and by the NATIONAL ELECTRICITY ENTER in exercising the functions assigned to it by Law N.24.065.

The power generation activity to respond to the free supply and demand game must be regulated only in those aspects and circumstances that affect the general interest.
