According to Aneel, the result of the readjustment was positive, because the readjustment will be lower than inflation for 99.6% of Celesc’s consumers. Among the items that most impacted this process, sector charges, energy acquisition and transport costs stand out.
The agency also claims that some residential consumers may experience a 4.22% reduction in electricity costs. This will depend on technical factors, such as the consumption range.
Measures that impact the tariff
The potential effect is a result of the application of complementary law 194/2022, which sets a ceiling for ICMS rates on electricity bills.
Another measure in this tariff process was that Aneel considered law 14,385/2022, which deals with the transfer of tax credits referring to the withdrawal of ICMS from the PIS/Pasep and Cofins calculation base, where R$ 806 were reversed in favor of consumers million, making it possible to reduce the tariff readjustment by 8.32%.
According to Aneel, the privatization of Eletrobrás also contributed to a 2.41% reduction in Celesc’s tariff readjustment. The mitigation measures of the financial components adopted by the Agency and by Celesc together total an attenuation of 15.41% in the tariff process of the distributor.
