Energy (Brazil): 7 facts or fake news?

Energy (Brazil): 7 facts or fake news? 

  1.  Delinquency (settlements) of USD billions in the deregulated power markets
  2.  Unplanned power interruptions for years above the regulated limit  
  3. Power theft of billions of dollars paid by consumers for years  
  4. Arbitration chambers that take years to solve conflicts  
  5. Price of Brazilian power in USD/kWh is for years the largest among BRICS  
  6. Official power companies in very bad economic and financial situation
  7. The absence - for years - of an official plan to achieve sector competitiveness

f you believe that these are real facts then you have to take a stand and demand changes. The solutions may not be easy because Brazil is a country without strategy for the power sector. It has been drifting for decades. But they are essentially simple!

If your choice is to believe that it is just fake news then it is about supporting our collective alienation.
