Electric power: a bold contracting suggestion

If your company or institution has courage, creativity and boldness in its DNA, here's an unconventional suggestion.

Contract electricity on the free market in the "spot".

The justification is simple. The power consumption of electric energy fell significantly due to the pandemic. Prices, as a result, too.

The recovery of the economy, as pointed out by the majority of the economists, will be gradual. Both in Brazil and abroad.

And so the most likely scenario, in the medium term, is for supply to be comfortably above the market's demand, pointing to the maintenance of low power prices.

To consider this alternative, make sure to contact me to learn about the alternatives and how to manage the associated risks.
