Brazil's State-Owned Eletrobras to Invest $1 Billion a year Through 2035

Brazilian state-owned power company Eletrobras plans to invest 6 billion reais ($1.1 billion) per year until 2035 expanding its power generation and transmission, according to a long-term strategic plan released on Saturday.

That could more than double, to 12.6 billion reais a year, if the government is successful in privatizing the company.

Privatizing Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA, as the company is formally known, is a priority for the government, Brazil's energy minister said last week. But it requires congressional approval and faces an uphill political battle.
