Crisis and generator sets
Brazil has an installed park of diesel generator sets especially for the business and institutional sector.
They could be a very interesting tool to help face the energy crisis. Could!
But.. the bonus these customers are supposed to receive for "dispatching them" should be consistent with the real situation:
* Diesel price of R$ 4.5/Liter
* Diesel cost is R$ 1.35/kWh delivered by the group
* Operation and maintenance costs (by the book) are R$0.25/kWh
* Total cost is R$ 1.6/kWh or R$1600/MWh
The bonus should be significantly above R$1600/MWh... to make sense!
1 USD = R$ 5,2
