We promote the efficient use of electricity, helping to prevent waste and reduce sector costs and investments through the National Electrical Energy Conservation Program (Procel), created in 1985 by the federal government and implemented by our company.

Procel's actions are aimed at increasing the efficiency of goods and services, disseminating knowledge about the efficient use of energy for the adoption of more conscious consumption habits. Thus, the program contributes to delay new investments in the electricity sector, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate environmental impacts, contributing to a more sustainable world.
