Proposal to reduce power costs in Brazil
- Aug 31, 2020 8:17 pm GMT
The most popular water heating in Brazil, is the instant 5 kW shower, which, in retail, costs about USD 10.
It is the cheapest initial cost solution, but the most expensive in the world when the final cost is calculated!.
The electricity sector needs to invest around USD 10 000 to cope with generation, transmission and distribution to meet a 5 kW demand load.
The monthly amortization of this investment, is USD 100/month.
The electric shower accounts for about 25% of the national residential average consumption of 170 kWh/month, or 40 kWh/month. Due to the tariffs granted by ANEEL to the electric distributors, the shower generates revenue of USD 10/month in round numbers.
The difference of USD 90/month, represents billions of USD per month, is paid "by others" (industry, commerce and institutions). It's time to change! To become competitive.
