Annual Report 2016

Online process As mentioned in the previous survey, some respondents requested that documents be accepted by e-mail and that there is an online monitoring of this process. It is important to note that, pursuant to REN 687/2015, distributors must provide, as of January 2017, an electronic system through which consumers can send access requests and all documents listed in the annexes of Section 3.7 of Module 3 of PRODIST and monitor each step of the process online (ANEEL, 2015a). Funding As in the previous survey, a number of respondents indicated the need for financial agents to develop a credit line specifically targeting the distributed generation market. Fees and Taxes A few Brazilian states have already adopted ICMS tax exemption for distributed generation (ICMS Agreement No. 16/2015). One respondent said that her state’s government is still levying the ICMS tax, which, in her opinion, makes it difficult to sell PV systems.
