 Buildings located in Tiradentes, east of Sao Paulo” The Company of Housing and Urban Development of the State of São Paulo (CDHU-SP) and the electricity utility AES Eletropaulo joined efforts to both reduce energy consumption and benefit low-income families. AES Eletropaulo announced in a press release at the end of May that it will donate and install 5,000 solar water heaters for more than 20,000 residents of buildings located in Tiradentes, east of Sao Paulo. The estimated investment by the company amounts to around USD 25 million. The programme fulfills the requirement of the national Electricity Regulatory Agency (ANEEL), which obliges all energy utilities in Brazil to spend at least 0.5 % of their net operation income on activities aimed at reducing electricity consumption.
