Thus, because there is no submission of new amendments, the vote has been finalised. Now the proposal goes to the House of Representatives to Members.

In addition to enabling any consumer to buy energy directly from the owners of the plants, the approved project also provides for the allocation of two-thirds of the so-called hydraulic income to the Development (CDE), which pays for subsidies in the electricity sector. The money from that fund comes from a charge charged on the electricity bills of all Brazilian.
