Error when loading data to a table

Hello i´m currently doing a free online course for Power BI for business inteligence when i encountered the following error while using PostegreSQL and loading data to a table:

 

ERROR:  invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0xe9 0x73 0x74
CONTEXT:  COPY TB_PRODUTO, line 2
 
I understand this looks like a location/language error, but i don´t know how to solve for PostegreSQL, only on Power BI. And please note the default language for my PostegreSQL is already set to UTF-8.
 
Thanks for the help,
Victor Beaklini

It appears to be a problem with the data in the database.  I am not sure that you will be able to fix it or work around it with Power BI.  Here are a few references I found.
