The Electricity Social Tariff offers discounts on the electricity bill, and depending on the situation, the beneficiary may be exempt

Estimated reading time: 3 Minutes

The Electricity Social Tariff Program offers discounts on the electricity bill and, depending on the situation, the beneficiary may be exempted from paying. However, there is a group of people who can be useless.

According to the Ministry of Citizenship, there are people who are having problems registering in CadÚnico, because the information provided is incomplete or has some errors.

This way, these beneficiaries must go to a Reference Center for Social Assistance (CRAS) near their place of residence for a registration review. In this case, the responsible family will be interviewed again.

Thus, the maximum deadline for the beneficiary to resolve his status before the cut in the social energy tariff is July 31, 2022.

How to check the status in CadÚnico

To check if there is a problem with registration in CadÚnico, it is necessary to access the website of Ministry of Citizenship. Thus, inform the CPF and gov.br password for the consultation. Those who do not have a gov.br account will need to create one for free.

It is important to note that CadÚnico can also influence other social programs such as Auxílio Brasil. Therefore, it is necessary to refer to the registration status and review the data as soon as possible.

Moreover, according to the Ministry of Citizenship, by the end of the year, the registrations of those in good standing should be updated.

Discount on the social tariff for electricity

According to the program rules, the social electricity tariff discount varies depending on consumption. Therefore, the lower the electricity consumption, the lower the amount paid on the electricity bill.

For the general public served by the program, the discounts are:

  • consumption up to 30 kWh per month – 65%;
  • consumption between 31 and 100 kWh per month – 40%;
  • Consumption between 101 and 220 kWh per month – 10%.

For indigenous families and Quilombola families, the discounts are even greater:

  • consumption up to 50 kWh per month – 100%;
  • consumption between 51 and 100 kWh per month – 40%;
  • Consumption between 101 and 220 kWh per month – 10%.

If the family consumes more than the program allows, there are no discounts on the bill. Thus, it is necessary to reduce the expenditure to reach the benefit.
