Doubts (Brazil)!

The free power market tends to be universalized in Brazil. There are regulatory efforts in this direction.

The possibility of choosing power suppliers in a competitive environment is, in principle, great!

In the current regulation, the  tariffs established by ANEEL result from an apportionment between renewable and non-renewable sources (thermal sources par excellence) dispatched by the independent system operator.

Today, free consumers "only" contract renewable and thermal plants are not included in the "package" and accordingly in the calculations.

Assuming a massive migration to the free market, in a few years, how will the cost of thermal plants be allocated?

The doubt should be quickly clarified by the regulator so that the electricity sector could induce predictability, respect for contracts and trust.

Or not?
