free market

Energy free market was created in Brazil in 1995 to promote free competition between suppliers and foster a business environment with better conditions for energy wholesale consumers and generators.

The commercial conditions are flexible with regards to price, contracting period and contract indexer. Being free is to be able to make better contracts and to develop your own strategies, in addition to choosing your supplier.

In the regulated market, consumers can only buy electricity from the concessionaire that serves their region. Prices are determined by the supplier and are subject to the delivery tariffs established by ANEEL.

The energy supplied is purchased from the distributors who, in turn, acquire it through federal auctions, which the costs are passed on to the consumer.

benefits of being free

cost reduction

This is one of the key benefits for those migrating from the regulated market to the free market of energy. The companies start to negotiate price, terms and indexation, besides being able to better adjust their consumption.

budget predictability

By being able to negotiate their energy in advance in the free market, companies can elaborate a budget forecast, not being subject to the variations and adversities of the regulated market.

power of decision

In the regulated market, consumers can not choose their energy suppliers. They are subject to increases in energy prices. Therefore, the free market guarantees greater performance and profitability for companies.
