Brazilian Discounts for Renewable Energy
Jamais Cascio, 25 Aug 04

Also via Alternative Energy Blog is a report in Business News Americas that the Brazilian power regulator, Aneel, has announced that it will discount transmission and distribution rates by up to 50% for renewable power. Local predictions are that this will correspondingly double the demand. Discounted power types include wind, solar, small-scale hydro, biomass and cogeneration plants. The discounts -- which will result in a 10-15% drop in customer costs -- are intended to encourage smaller businesses to buy directly from the renewable generators, not from the "incumbent distributors."
