Light bills will have green flag in April

According to the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL), the green tariff flag is maintained for the month of April. This will be the third consecutive month of the flag for consumers.

In March, the reason for the permanence of the green flag was the volume of rains that recovered the levels of the main reservoirs of hydroelectric plants of the SIN (National Interconnected System). The good news is that for April, the forecast is for the continuity of the participation of hydroelectric plants in meeting the energy demand.

In addition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, consumption forecasts indicate that there will be a reduction in the energy load in April and May, which will further decrease the value of the electricity bill.

Created by ANEEL, the tariff flag system signals the real cost of the energy generated, enabling consumers to make good use of electricity. The operation of tariff flags is simple: the colors green, yellow or red (on levels 1 and 2) indicate whether the energy will cost more or less depending on the generation conditions.
