How is your company in $/MWh?

An important metric, which reflects the cost of power contracting , is the total bill paid to the local concessionaire in $, referring to the total consumption in MWh, "A".

This metric can be compared to the average value that the concessionaire received in $/MWh from its customers.

It's easy! Access the link (it is published by the Brazilian regulator, ANEEL).

1) Choose the voltage class that your company is connected to at the local concessionaire  in the upper left corner.

2) Choose the year of comparison in the upper left corner

3) Look in the left column for the name of your concessionaire

4) Look in your concessionaire's row for the right column, which is R$/ MWh including taxes, "B"

5) Compare "A" to "B" now. If "A" is less than "B" it is already an indication that your power management is better than the average. Otherwise, it is necessary to find out what can be improved  and  reduce costs.

If all this seems complicated to you, get in touch and I will help you.
