Where will the Brazilian free power market go?

There is an ongoing effort to expand access to the free power market.

The intention is to make it possible for all consumers, regardless of their size, to migrate to the free market, if they so desire.

It happens that in the current system, a significant portion of the costs of the electricity sector is paid only by regulated energy users.

It means that, with this universalization, these costs will necessarily be transferred, burdening everyone, of course!

I'm not making a value judgment about universalization. Just noting that all deregulated, free consumers, will have relatively higher costs than those currently incurred.

For those who value a long-term view, this question will be worth considering.
