The company started the construction of the solar farm on December 2015. It will be located in the State of Bahia, Brazil’s northest area, and it is foreseen to have a total installed capacity of 254 MWp, with an estimated annual energy production of roughy 496.570 MWh, equal to the annual consumption needs of more than 243.000 Brazilian households, avoiding the emission of over 303.365 tons of CO2 per year.
The grid connection is expected at the end of 2017. The solar farm is foreseen to integrate single-axis trackers setting up that allow the photovoltaic modules to vary its orientation during the day depending on the position of the sun. This is the largest solar power plant built by Enel Green Power and it will help to meet Brazil’s fast growing electricity demand: indeed – according to last forecast – the edification will grow at an average annual rate of 4% up to 2020.
