The National Electric System Operator (ONS) advised that hydroelectric plants do not carry out the scheduled maintenance for the second half of the year. According to Luiz Ciocchi, director general of the company, despite rumors involving risk of rationing and blackouts, there is nothing exceptional in the orientation and the purpose of the postponement would be only a measure to spare the reservoirs.

The levels of the reservoirs of the Southeast and Midwest, the most important for the electricity supply, are at lower levels than in 2001, when there was rationing.
