COVID-19 and electricity: what's the challenge in Brazil?

Despite the seriousness of the situation due to the corona virus, especially in relation to the restrictions that all of us are subjected, the daily curve of national electricity consumption has not undergone significant changes!

The maximum demand and the average demand remain in the same order of magnitude as always!

* Customers will honor their energy bill payments in these critical times?
* Are energy traders and utilities prepared to face major defaults?
* Is the country prepared to face this challenge?

The electric sector value chain involves billions of USD per month. So all stake holders are expected to do their part!
