Who pays for the deregulated power bill?

Brazilian consumers who migrated to the free market had and still have the opportunity to reduce their electricity bill costs.

For the simple fact that the commodity in this environment is cheaper.

With the expansion (allowed by the regulator) of the scope of the free market, more consumers will be able to benefit from more attractive prices.

It remains to be seen how the compensation for costs that captive tariffs include but which do not occur in free prices will be carried out.

Ultimately, when the entire market can migrate to the free environment, how will the bills paid by (captive) tariffs be "allocated"?

In order to make quality decisions, it would be desirable for this matter to be clarified.

Not so sure “de-regulated” is accurate. Strikes me “re-regulated” to favor some other special interest group(s) is actually what occurs.
