The National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) approved today (21) the new readjustment of tariff flags, which affect the electricity bill in case of water shortages or any factor that increases the cost of electricity production.

The increases will not make electricity bills more expensive because, since April, the tariff flag has been green, when there is no additional charge. The values ​​will take effect on July 1st and will be revised in mid-2023.

According to Aneel, the high reflects inflation and the higher cost of thermoelectric plants in 2022, triggered in times of water crisis.

Check the new values ​​of the tariff flags:

Green flag: no additional charge;
Yellow flag: +59.5%, from R$18.74 to R$29.89 per megawatt-hour (MWh);
Red flag level 1: +63.7%, from R$39.71 to R$65 per megawatt-hour (MWh);
Red flag level 2: +3.2%, from R$94.92 to R$97.95 per megawatt-hour (MWh).

Since April 16, the green flag has been in effect in Brazil, when the end of the water scarcity flag was anticipated. According to the National Electric System Operator (ONS), the green flag will be maintained until December, due to the recovery of the levels of the hydroelectric plant reservoirs at the beginning of the year.
