The Brazilian government's plan to privatize power holding company Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA will not lead to an increase in electricity prices, Mining and Energy Minister Fernando Coelho Filho said on Friday.
In an interview with Reuters, the minister said a change in the quota system regulating generation at the company's hydropower dams will take place over five or six years, avoiding the abrupt rate hikes forecast by regulator Aneel on Wednesday.
