EDP offers R$ 5.8 million in Public Call for Energy Efficiency

Tuesday 06, November 2018

The goal is to promote the fight against waste and reduce energy consumption in the concession area managed by EDP; candidates can enroll at www.edp.com.br

EDP, an electrical energy distributor from the Alto Tietê, Vale do Paraiba and the North Coast of Sao Paulo regions, has initiated a Public Call for energy efficiency projects. In 2018, the company will provide a total of R$ 5.8 million to promote projects focusing on rational electricity use and conservation, which the Distributor will invest next year.

The initiatives must offer private and public benefits, supporting transformation via energy efficiency, stimulating development of new technologies and creating habits and practices that bolster the rational energy use.

EDP’s Public Call will support initiatives by corporations and individuals looking to improve or replace networks, equipment or control systems in order to reduce energy consumption at homes, commerce, industries, public and private buildings, public hospitals and charitable entities, by street lighting, and in other areas.

The previous edition of the Public Call provided benefits such as the modernization of the lighting system at the Jesus, Jose e Maria Hospital, in Guarulhos, at the Vale do Paraíba University - UNIVAP, in Sao Jose dos Campos, and at buildings used by the Association of Parents and Friends of the Disabled (APAE) in ten cities across the concession area, in addition to the Community Efficiency Project that replaced 60 thousand higher-consumption light bulbs from residential customers for LED lights, in 2018.
