Energisa has extended the public call for selection of projects for the Energy Efficiency Program (PEE) until November 20th. The initiative is aligned with the Group’s Sustainable Development commitment to promote conscious energy consumption. R$ 2.5 million is available for Tocantins, which can be directed to public lighting infrastructures, social organizations, companies and public authorities.
In previous public calls, important institutions in the State were selected, such as the General Hospital of Palmas (HGP), General Command of the Military Police, Federal University of Tocantins – Palmas Campus, Federal Institute of Tocantins – Araguatins Campus, Regional Hospital of Araguaína (HRA) , among others. Several cities also benefited from the call, with projects aimed at modernizing public lighting, replacing conventional lamps with LED lamps, such as Palmas, Miracema, Itacajá, Santa Fé do Araguaia and Aparecida do Rio Negro.
The Program is carried out by Energisa and follows the guidelines defined by the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL). Submission of proposals and access to notices is done online via the link. The selection of approved projects will be announced on February 9, 2024. In addition to Tocantins customers, the opportunity is also open to customers of the group’s distributors in the states of Minas Gerais, São Paulo, Paraíba, Paraná, Sergipe, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Acre and Rondônia. For all states, the concessionaire’s public call will invest 31 million.

According to Energisa Tocantins Energy Efficiency Analyst, Domingos Júnior, the extension of the public call is another opportunity for those who have not yet registered to participate. “The concessionaire wants to further strengthen actions to promote the efficient and rational use of electrical energy, encouraging the development of new technologies and the creation of rational consumption habits and practices. We hope that more customers can participate in this call, now that the deadline has been extended,” he said.
Energisa’s Director of Management and Sustainability, Tatiana Feliciano, explains that the most important thing for proponents to qualify is to show that their projects will provide greater energy efficiency, whether through traditional solutions or other more innovative ones. “The PEE is an important public program, operated by electricity distributors and which, at Energisa, is aligned with our sustainability commitments. We want to help Brazil and our customers in the energy transition, applying solutions that also contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals”, highlights Tatiana.
