Deregulated power prices 

The offer of firm electricity prices for future delivery in Brazil, continues to be very attractive.

And the most impressive thing is the month-to-month decline. In 12 months it was more than 40%.

Reservoirs - hydroelectric plants (the country's most important source) are full and the country's power demand "well-behaved" characterize the foundations of this situation.

This is a systemic trend that is even worrying because, for suppliers, the price is below the economic equilibrium reference considering the amortization of investments in generation plants.

A scenario that requires careful evaluation.
