Question for the presidential candidates (Brazil)

The Brazilian electricity sector tends to expand the supply of the free (deregulated) energy market to all consumers, including the residential ones.

The central motivation is cost, which is much lower than in the regulated market.

The prevailing trend is that this situation will occur at the end of the next presidential term.

And so, I present my question, for each candidate to offer their approach.

Assuming a massive migration to the free market, because of its attractiveness, how will
the subsidies, charges and even power theft that are charged from regulated energy users but not from the deregulated.

Who will pay?
