    Half of Brazilians know someone who generates their own energy, says CNI

    November 18, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Almost half of Brazilians know someone who generates their own energy, through solar panels or wind power plants, for example. This is what a survey conducted by CNI (National Confederation of Industry) says.

      Despite the indicator, only 3% of respondents said they are self-generators of energy.

      According to the confederation, the percentage of those who say they know relatives or acquaintances who generate their own energy increases according to the income bracket.

      While the rate is 37% in the group of respondents with family income of up to one minimum wage, the share jumps to 64% among those who have a family income of more than five wages.

      In January this year, the sector's regulatory mark was sanctioned, which deals with distributed energy generation. The current segment rules remain valid for consumers who had micro and mini generation projects installed and for new requests made until the beginning of next year.

      For projects after this period, the law foresees a transition to a staggered payment of the TUSD (Tariff for Use of the Distribution System).
