Aneel estimates impact of $245 mm with reduction in flow of Belo Monte

In a letter sent to the Brazilian Institute of Environment and Renewable Natural Resources, the National Electrical Energy Agency states that the change in the flow of the Belo Monte dam will have an impact of around R$1.3 billion ($245 mm) for consumers in January and February 2021. The cost increase, according to Aneel, is a consequence of activating more thermoelectric generation to compensate for the plant’s decrease in production.
