In the following research we carried out the study and analysis of the economic problems in Ecuador due to the subsidies of liquefied petroleum gas LPG, these are one of the factors to highlight in our research since the Ecuadorian state during the last 12 years has covered with these expenses of state aid this is estimated around USD 29 421 million, a figure equivalent to the amount allocated by the Treasury to investment in public works in the last three and a half years. Currently in Ecuador, the main source of energy for cooking food, heaters, dryers and various appliances in Ecuadorian homes is liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), which is a very important energy consumption in Ecuadorian society, in such virtue should seek alternative consumption of renewable energy factors that help the economy and can partially or completely replace the use of subsidized liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). With the construction of new generations of hydroelectric plants such as: Mazar, Coca Codo Sinclair and Toachi Pilatón; it is not viable the vision to the analysis of the implementation of factors that help to save LPG consumption with this new alternative that are the hydroelectric power plants it was proposed the government of "Rafael Correa" with contribution of the EEQ and several electrical of Ecuador on August 18, 2014 the implementation of the project PEC (Efficient Cooking Program) that would allow to largely replace the use of LPG by magnetic induction stoves. The changes of gas services by induction is based on the transformation of the domiciliary or internal electrical network of each household, with the help of private and public companies such as SERCOP and EEQ make requests and orders through contractors, the change of connections and meters this is a method that is performed in order to provide a higher electrical voltage, it is the change of a network of single-phase system to a network of two-phase system. These same contractors divided their work on the one hand, one sector was dedicated to the meters and others to the changes that will appear in the change of the internal circuit of each home, which is to make an electrical design of the distribution box where the new induction stove is directed or located in order to substantiate in an equivalent manner throughout the home, The importance of this is to take into account the consumption of other electrical or electronic devices that are in the home, it should be noted that each equipment works with different electrical loads and it would be advisable to verify them with technicians and engineers only for a backup and guarantee of the electrical networks.
