IR 02/14 - Copel’s electricity sales to final customers grew by 9.6% in 2013

This report analyzes the performance of Copel’s electricity market between January and December 2013 and all comparisons refer to the same period in 2012.

Copel’s electricity sales to final customers, comprising Copel Distribuição’s sales in the captive market and Copel Geração e Transmissão’s sales in the free market, increased by 9.6% between January and December.

The main contribution to this result is the 21.3% growth in electricity sales to the industrial segment as a result of the industrial performance in the State of Paraná in 2013 (5.7% growth until November versus 1.4% growth in Brazil) and the strategy adopted by Copel GeT to allocate more electricity to the free market, allowing electricity to be sold to industrial customers from other States.

The table below breaks down electricity sales by customer segment:

Captive Market – Copel Distribuição

Electricity sales to Copel Distribuição’s captive market decreased by 1.4% in 2013 in comparison with 2012, chiefly due to the migration of industrial customers to the free market. Should the effect of the migrations to the free market be disregarded, Copel’s captive market would grow by 3.2% in the period.

The residential segment consumed 6,888 GWh, 5.0% up, due to the 3.9% increase in the customer base and the upturn in average consumption in the period, as a result of the increase in the employment level and higher income. At the end of 2013, this segment accounted for 30.1% of Copel’s captive market, totaling 3,320,098 residential customers.

The industrial segment, in the captive market, consumed 6,605 GWh, 10.8% down, due to the migration of large industrial customers to the free market. Should the effect of this migration be disregarded, the segment would grow by 3.5% over 2012, reflecting the growth in industrial production in the State. At the end of the period, this segment accounted for 28.8% of Copel’s captive market, with the company supplying power to 93,491 industrial customers.

The commercial segment consumed 5,074 GWh, 0.5% higher than in the same period the year before. At the end of 2013, this segment accounted for 22.1% of Copel’s captive market, with the company supplying power to 338,502 customers.

The rural segment consumed 2,081 GWh, growing by 2.8%, mainly due to the strong performance of agribusiness in the State of Paraná. At the end of December, this segment accounted for 9.1% of Copel’s captive market, with the company supplying power to 372.835 rural customers.

Other segments (public agencies, public lighting, public services and own consumption) consumed 2,278 GWh, 3.0% up in the period. These segments jointly account for 9.9% of Copel’s captive market, totaling 56,567 customers at the end of the period.
