Impact on electricity tariff
Profeco assured that the consumption of electrical energy in these devices is “important” so that if it is used daily for two or three times the receipt can increase between 30 and 50 pesos.
For example, if you fry a pound of potato strips at 200 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes, the fryer will consume approximately 500 watt-hours, which at the highest residential rate equals 50 cents.
“If you use it occasionally, it will not have a significant impact on your bi-monthly electricity bill; however, if you do it daily on two or three occasions, your receipt could increase between approximately 30 and 50 pesos, ”said Profeco.
