Energy bill can get even more expensive

The National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL), which had already increased the extra charge from R$ 6.24 to R$ 9.49 per 100 kilowatt-hours (kWh) in the red flag level 2, has been discussing whether to keep the amount or increase to R$ 11.50. The justification for this new adjustment would be the flexibilization measures to store more water in hydroelectric power plant reservoirs. It is estimated that the country will continue to operate with a red flag until November.

With the measures that the government has been taking, thermoelectric plants have been used more, generating more expenses, which are passed on to the consumer in the form of an extra fee. According to the Electric Energy Trading Chamber (CCEE), the annual forecast of energy spending, which before it was about 9 billion, should now be 13.1 billion.
