Court orders and power credits 

Two themes have been on the news in Brazil.

One about the Federal Government not respecting a court order regarding USD Billions that should be paid.

Another one promising that whoever saves power (energy crisis) will a have a credit on the bill they will receive next year. Do you think it's reasonable to believe in this promise? In other words, that you will be paid?

If the court orders, which concern the obligation decided by the Court, are ultimately due to be untimely extended, how can you consider it feasible to receive the credit to which the citizen would be entitled for the savings made?

Brazil is losing credibility. Lack of official respect for contracts. Lack of legal certainty.

Do you honestly think you'll get credit for any savings you make in energy consumption?
