Applications for the construction of nearly 1 GW (1,000 MW) of new solar power capacity have recently been received by Brazil’s national electricity regulator, ANEEL. A total of 21 new requests have been received by the agency in recent weeks.
Among these applications are: 7 new PV plants in the central state of Minas Gerais, including the 30MW Patos de Minas solar project, the 30MW Tupaciguara project, the 30MW João Pinheiro project, and a 30MW project in Araguari.
“The remaining three plants planned for the region are 30 MW Caprichosa 1 and 30 MW Caprichosa 4 in Jaíba municipality by CEI Solar Empreendimentos Energéticos; and 30 MW Jaíba 1 in the same municipality by Solares Empreendimentos Energético. Solyes Geradora de Energia submitted five requests to build photovoltaic plants in the north eastern state of Bahia. The plants include: 29 MW Sol do Sertão II; 15 MW Sol do Sertão IV; 29 MW Sol do Sertão VI; 29 MW Sol do Sertão IX; and 10 MW Sol do Sertão XIV.”
Northeastern Brazil looks as though it may also receive 3 different 30MW projects in the São José do Belmonte municipality in the state Pernambuco.
“In Piauí, another northeastern Brazilian state, Sertão Solar Energia is planning to build 30 MW Sertão 1 and 30 MW Sertão 2 in João Costa municipality, while developer Sobral Solar Energia informed ANEEL of its plans to install 30 MW Sobral 1 and 30 MW Sobral 2 in São João do Piauí municipality.”
“The remaining two applications were received from Araguaina Serviços Administrativos, which wants to develop 30 MW Iguatu in a municipality of the same name in Ceará state, while Universo Serviços Administrativos applied to build 30 MW Uruaçu in the state of Goiás.”
