Super sexy power prices!

The deregulated  electricity power market is offering a firm price for future delivery of around R$110/MWh (USD 22/MWh).

This value is for conventional energy and also for incentivized energy (considering the 50% "wire" discount).

It's a spectacular price level!

It is far below the calculations I make, relative to the marginal cost of expansion, which gives a solid price reference that compensates the investor (generation plant) with a reasonable rate!

And it is also well below the regulated energy tariffs granted to local electric utility companies.
