This is an increase compared to the previous week due to low flows
The Price for Settling Differences (PLD) for the week of July 15 – 21 2017 is the same across the country. The PLD went up 5% this week, and was set at R$ 266,98/MWh in all sub-markets.
Lower flows expected across the National Interconnected System (SIN), and low hydro plant reservoirs remain the main cause for higher prices.
The weekly PLD is influenced by hydro plant reservoir levels, forecast affluent natural energy and estimated use of energy across the country, among other factors.
