Learn how the Tariff Flag System works

The Flag System Tariffs acts as a signal for the consumer of electricity knows, month by month, the conditions and actual costs generation in the country. It was implemented in 2015 and administered by the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL).

The system works by means of three colors (green, yellow and red) that indicate whether or not there will be an increase in the amount to be charged to the electricity bill. When production at hydroelectric plants is favorable, the green flag is activated, with no extra fee for the consumer. In bad conditions, the yellow flag or the red flag (level 1 or 2) may be triggered.

The Director General Aneel, André Pepitone, stresses the importance of consumers being attentive to the flags, especially the red one, which has two levels. "With the announcement of the red flag level 2, for example, consumers should seek to avoid wasting water and energy," he said.
