Where is it best to consume energy in Brazil?

Suppose you need to decide on the location of an industrial unit that should be connected at high voltage - because of its size - and its energy cost is a Top 5 one.

Looking at the perspective of the tariffs granted by the regulator regarding the wire fees the assessment would be simple and even easy.

But would the local concessionaire be able to service this unit?

The question may even sound silly. But the economic and financial situation of the concessionaires in Brazil justifies the concern.

Not all concessionaires would be able to invest in the necessary infrastructure to connect a relevant load in a reasonable time for the customer.

 Bottom line: be careful!
