The National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) this Tuesday (19) approved a tariff adjustment in the electricity bill for distributors serving consumers in four states: Ceará, Bahia, Sergipe and Rio Grande do Norte.
In Ceará, the annual tariff adjustment adjustment for Enel Distribuição, a company that serves about 3.8 million consumer units, was 24.85% on average. The increase will take effect on the twenty-second of this month. According to Anel, the combination of the approved tariff adjustment with the end of the water scarcity science imposition would result in a tariff effect on the traditional B1 residential consumer of 0.09%.
The annual tariff readjustment of the Bahia State Electricity Company (Neoenergia Coelba) also takes effect on the 22nd, an increase of 20.73% for resident consumers. The company serves about 6.3 million consumer units in the state.
According to Anil, as the surcharge on the electricity bill ends, with the science of water scarcity ending, the tariff effect for the traditional residential consumer B1 should be -1.58%.
Aneel also agreed to an annual tariff adjustment for Companhia Energética do Rio Grande do Norte (Neoenergia Cosern). The company’s new tariffs, which is responsible for distributing energy to 1.5 million consumer units in the country, went into effect on the 22nd, with a 19.87% readjustment for residential consumers.
Despite the amendment, the consolidation with the end of the water shortage science fee resulted in a tariff impact on the traditional B1 residential consumer of -4.11%, the agency says.
Sergipe State will also have an electric bill adjustment. Aneel allowed Energisa Sergipe – Distribuidora de Energia SA (ESE) to implement a 16.46% tariff increase for residential consumers starting on the 22nd. The company serves about 825,000 consumer units in the state.
According to the regulator, similarly, due to the expiration of the water scarcity tariff science, the recalibration readjustment will be eased, with the tariff impacting the traditional B1 residential consumer at -6.15%.
