What is Free Energy Market?
It is a more economical and advantageous way of contracting electricity, available to all high tension energy consumers through the Free Contracting Environment (ACL, in portuguese).
In this format, the organization transitions from a captive market, in which it is compelled to purchase energy from its local distributor, to having the freedom to choose both the supplier and the energy source of its choosing. This shift creates possibilities for up to 35% savings in energy bills and the utilization of renewable energy sources, for instance.Discover your Saving
Customize your demand
In the Regulated Contracting Environment (ACR, in portuguese), distributors acquire energy through government auctions. The input is then resold to consumers for a fee, which is subject to constant adjustments, often above inflation.
In contrast, while the captive Market limits the customer to one type of supply contract, the free market provides flexibility to negotiate different contract conditions. Thus, the company may customize items such as contracted volume, values, contract duration, readjustment indexes, among others, bringing a more tailored supply of energy to your business and eliminating unnecessary costs.I want to migrate my company

You can find this information on the electricity bill you receive from your distributor. But rest assured that we check the feasibility of your company’s migration! Just fill out our form and attach your last electricity bill.
Even in the free market, the person responsible for transporting electricity remains the local distributor. However, after the migration, you will pay the distributor only the amounts referring to other components of the electricity bill, such as taxes, public lighting charges, distribution network maintenance services, among others.
No. The migration does not impact energy quality, as the distribution service continues to be provided in the same way as before. So, even if you have consumed a larger volume than what was contracted in that period, your outlet will not run out of electricity.
Unlike the captive market, where energy is consumed, then measured, to then generate the bill, in the free market the purchase is made before consumption. In this case, it is possible that there is a lack or surplus in the volume contracted versus consumed. But don’t worry! As this compensation is made in the short-term market and regulated by the Câmara de Comercialização de Energia Elétrica (CCEE). That is, there will never be a power cut because of this difference. In addition, the surplus can be traded on the market and still generate extra income for your company.
You have the autonomy to manage your own energy contracts in the free market, as soon as you become an agent with CCEE. However, it is very important to have the support of a company specialized in this market, such as Ecom. This is because we provide our customers with an infrastructure with market intelligence, that is, we keep an eye on everything that influences the price of electricity. Thus, we are able to indicate the right moments for hiring, in addition to offering support in regulatory processes.
