Understand the Free Energy Market
Enel Brasil already is the access option to the free energy market for companies in several segments: food, automotive, hospitals, paper and cellulose, chemical, shopping centres, metallurgy and glass, among others. Understand why these companies have chosen the free energy market and join Enel.
It is a customer allowed to choose to buy electricity from any energy supplier sanctioned by Aneel, regardless of the region and the local energy concessionaire.
To adopt the Free Market, the customer must have a demand equal to or larger than 3MW.
Consumers with contracted demand greater than or equal to 500 kW (and lower than 3 MW) can adopt the Free Market if they acquire energy from incentivised sources - small hydroelectric, wind, solar, biomass or qualified co-generation plants with injected output into the grid lower than or equal to 30 MW. These are called special free consumers.
Conventional Energy is that generated by projects that inject into the grid output over 30 MW. Meanwhile, Incentivised Energy is that which originates from projects with hydroelectric, solar, wind, biomass or qualified co-generation sources, and that inject into the grid output equal to or smaller than 30 MW.
To migrate to the Free Market, your company must check if it fulfils the minimum conditions required by law, defined in item 2. If these conditions are met, the next step is to conduct a viability study to ascertain your company’s energy costs, in the case of migration to the Free Market. After that, it is necessary to communicate with your distributor and the Chamber of Electric Energy Trading (Câmara de Comercialização de Energia Elétrica or CCEE) and make the intention to migrate known, as well as adequating your company’s electricity meter system.

It has operated in Brazil for decades, and as such has deep knowledge of the conditions and workings of the Brazilian market. This way, it is qualified to find and propose the most adequate conditions for contracting energy through the Free Market for your business.
