Eletrobras: privatization can reduce tariffs

The president of Eletrobras, Wilson Ferreira Júnior, said that the capitalization value of power plants, within the process of privatization, “will be a fair number” and that will also help reduce the value of consumer fees.

“What you’ve been checking at the last auctions is falling Rates. Regardless of Eletrobras, there is a very clear trend of lower tariffs on renewable energy,” he said. For him the processes have to be “more positive, that is, cheaper, for the consumer.” He added: “I have no doubt that there will be better service, with more quality and lower price”, said Ferreira Junior.

The approval of Bill 5.877/2019, which deals with the privatization of Eletrobras, should take place in the first half of 2020 and give rise to the creation of a new private state that will manage Eletronuclear and the Itaipu Binacional Plant, another set of programs of “Luz para todos”, National Program for Electric Energy Conservation (Procel) and the Incentive Program to Alternative Sources of Electric Energy (Proinfa).
