Payment of R $4.5 billion can cheapize light bill

The anticipation of payment should result in the reduction of tariff in the consumer's Light account – which is where the money is generated to discharge the debt –, in addition to minimizing the commitment to the bank, due to debt reduction.

According to André Pepitone, director general of the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL), negotiating with the banks should be completed later this month. It is part of a package of measures that are under study to reduce the energy rate.
