Companhia Paranaense de Energia S.A.


Companhia Paranaense de Energia (Copel) is a state-owned electric energy firm that serves over 4.3mn clients across 394 municipalities in Paraná state and the Porto União municipality in Santa Catarina state.

The company has an installed capacity of 4,754MW generated from its 18 hydroelectric plants, seven wind farms, and one thermoelectric plant. It also has more than 191,000km of distribution lines and nearly 2,200km of transmission lines, forming one of the major power distribution networks of the country. In term of projects, Copel has interests in the development of different hydroelectric and wind initiatives, such as Colíder (300MW), Baixo Iguaçu (350MW), Copel Brisa Potiguar (196MW), Cutia (332MW) and São Miguel do Gostoso (108MW).

Founded in 1954, the company had to split its generation business into Copel Distribuição and Copel Geração e Transmissão in 2007 to comply with energy sector legislation. In 1998, it started providing telecommunication services in Paraná and Santa Caratina states through its subsidiary Copel Telecomunicações. Copel is also engaged in natural gas distribution via its 51% interest in Companhia Paranaense de Gás (Compagas).
