Since 2014 Viva Rio has been promoting the efficient and safe use of energy together with power provider Enel. We help residents formalize their utility connections, which were many times made illegally and at risk, which results in new receivers that pay a low fee for energy.
The project also implements social projects in the communities where it acts, with initiatives related to specific local demands, including courses and workshops, fast-track education programs and support for sporting and cultural activities.
Viva Rio supports Enel’s initiative and seizes this opportunity to offer social services in these regions. The project has already generated benefits in communities in Niterói, São Gonçalo and Itaboraí, outside the city of Rio.
