Alternative energy allowance weighs in light

The National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) recently reported that the light tariff may be affected by subsidies offered to companies alternative energy sources such as solar and wind sources.

With a focus on enabling new energy sources in the country, the government has granted benefits to companies that buy wind, solar or Biomass. To date, the incentive to alternative energies is paid by the consumers, and since 2013, has quintupled. By 2020, this cost should be reach the mark of R$ 3.24 billion, and may increase by a proportion of 30% to the Year.

Experts claim that if nothing is done, the account will continue to grow, and thus canceling measures that are being put into to alleviate the rise in tariffs. In a statement, the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) said it advocates reducing subsidies in the electricity sector and who has worked to adjust the laws governing this concession.
