Rising prices in Brazil: what to do?

The news is highlighting the increase in electricity prices and tariffs.

There are two possible approaches.

The most common among us is to "let it go" with the widely accepted justification that it is a fact over which there is no control.

The other, characteristic of a small minority, is to explore alternatives in order to choose those that are interesting and convenient to do better in this challenging situation.

The good news is that there is a list of opportunities that can/should be prospected. They range from transferring consumption to cheaper times, arbitrating costs with other energy sources, outsourcing selected productive activities and the list goes on and on!

Between a passive or proactive attitude, it is a decision that is up to the leaders of each company or institution.

So who are you in this scenario?
