Electric Power

Electricity tariffs are divided into monomial – for low voltage – and binomial, which include conventional and hourly tariffs, including Green and Blue. The monomial tariff is the electricity supply tariff composed of prices applicable only to active electricity consumption. The binomial tariff, on the other hand, is the tariff structure composed of prices applicable to active electricity consumption and billable demand.

The state tax that is levied on the tariff is the Tax on the Circulation of Goods and Services (ICMS). Provided for in article 155 of the 1988 Federal Constitution, this tax is levied on operations relating to the circulation of goods and services and is the competence of each state and the Federal District, so the rates are variable. The distributor has the obligation to charge the ICMS tax directly on the energy bill, passing the value to the state government. It has different rates, 27% for  industrial and commercial sector, and 12% for rural sector, as shown in the table below:

The Contribution to fund the Public Lighting Service (CIP) is foreseen in article 149-A of the 1988 Federal Constitution, which establishes, among the competencies of the municipalities, to dispose, according to a specific law approved by the City Council, the form of collection and the basis for calculating the CIP. Thus, it is attributed to the municipal government any and all responsibility for the project, implementation, expansion, operation and maintenance of public lighting facilities. In this case, the concessionaire only collects the fee of public lighting for the municipality. The transfer is made even when the consumer stops paying the energy bill. Based on an annual tariff from the National Agency for Electrical Energy (ANEEL), the municipalities calculate the amount that each taxpayer will pay, considering the individual consumption.

 

Table for calculating the CCIP:

Consumption of up to 100KWH per month                       1.00% of the TCIP

Consumption of 101 to 200KWH per month                     4.00% of the TCIP

Consumption of 201 to 300KWH per month                     6.00% of the TCIP

Consumption of 301 to 500KWH per month                     8.00% of the TCIP

Consumption of over 500KWH per month                        10.00% of the TCIP

Property without energy consumption meter per year   60.00% of the TCIP

Natural Gas

The natural gas distribution is present in the CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) segment in the city of Cuiabá since May 05, 2005, after the homologation of the ceiling tariff of this segment, on 30/11/2005, of R$ 0.89 per cubic meter, added to this value the commercialization costs and incident taxes, resulting in a final consumer value of R$ 1.35 per cubic meter that year

 

In current values the cost U$4.80 MBTU (Bolivia) resulting in the value to the final consumer, in consultation made on April 29, 2021 of R$ 2.80 or US$ 0.50.
