Power prices for 2019 rose 35% in Brazil

Subsidized power prices which were consistently around R$ 210/MWh jumped to R$ 285/MWh (1 USD = R$ 3,2). This is for delivery in 2019.

It is too early to say whether these new prices "came to stay" or whether it is an "episodic." phenomena.

The increase in the demand for power (with the steady recovery of  the country's GDP) and the ongoing stress in the supply of hydroelectric plants due to the delicacy of the reservoirs can be a plausible explanation.

This movement has not yet been captured in the prices published by companies specialized in collecting information from the main market agents.

Anyway...make sure to evaluate all options so that well informed decisions are made!
