Electricity bill will become more expensive from June

The National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) announced red tariff flag on the second level in electricity bills from June. The reason for the increase is the severe drought in the hydroelectric region. The announcement was made by ANEEL last Friday (28).

It is worth remembering that the red flag on the second level is the highest of the agency's tariff collection mechanism, and represents an extra charge of R$ 6,243 for every 100 kilowatt hours consumed in the electricity bill. It is important to remember that the red flag was already being applied during the month of May, but at a lower value, on the first level.

Also according to ANEEL, the wet period 2020-2021 recorded the worst water intake in the hydroelectric reservoir in the history of sin, which has been measured since 1931. This scenario indicates the need to trigger more thermal plants, which are more expensive, which results in the increase of the energy bill for consumers.
