Energy rates are set by ANEEL via periodical procedures established in concession agreements, supported by mechanisms that aim to establish an adequate rate level to guarantee the economic and financial equilibrium of companies at the minimum cost to consumers.
The main rate regulation mechanism is the so-called Periodical Rate Review, which takes place every four or five years at Energisa Group‘s distribution companies. This mechanism essentially aims to re-determine the efficient level of operating costs and investment remuneration.
In addition to this mechanism, every year Ordinary Rate Adjustments are made to adjust rates for inflation and to capture part of the efficiency obtained by the companies as a result of the market growth observed in the period.
In 2016 and 2018 the National Electricity Regulatory Agency (“Aneel”) ratified the 4th Cycle of the Periodical Rate Reviews (“4CRTP”) of nine subsidiaries of Energisa S/A.
The effects for consumers deriving from the latest adjustment process and rate review of each Energisa Group distribution company were as follows:

Regulatory Remuneration Base
The process of valuing assets of the regulatory remuneration base uses the VNR – New Replacement Value, which denotes the value at current market prices of an identical, similar or equivalent asset subject to replacement, which provide the same services and have the same capacity as the existing asset, including all the expenses necessary to install it.
The Regulatory remuneration base consists of the values of the following items:
- Property Plant and Equipment in Service (AIS)
- Buildings, civil works and improvements
- Machinery and equipment
- Intangible Assets – Easements
- Operations Warehouse
- Special Obligations
The net remuneration bases (BRL) of Energisa Group‘s distribution companies and the dates of the next Rate Reviews (RT) are as follows:
