This article estimates how much the wind farms in operation contributed to the preservation of reservoir levels in the years 2013, 2014 and 2015 in Brazil, due to the complementarity between the wind and water. Additionally, this study evaluates the economic benefit of wind power to the electrical system. The results show that the generation profile of wind energy allows for better optimization of resources, reallocating orders between the regions of the country over the period
