Brazil Plans Measures to Lower Industry Power Prices, Folha Says

Brazil’s government plans to introduce two measures to cut power prices as it seeks to spur investment by the industry, Folha de S.Paulo reported, without saying where it obtained the information.

The first will reduce at least two taxes paid by distributors that will permit them to sell at lower rates, the Sao Paulo-based newspaper said today. The second will allow operators of distribution, transmission and generation assets to renew concessions that expire by 2015 at lower prices.

The measures are expected to be submitted to President Dilma Rousseff next week and sent for approval by Congress before June 17 when it goes into recess, according to the newspaper.
