Brazilian electricity regulator Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica (ANEEL) has received plans for the proposed development of two 30MW PV projects.
The first proposal was submitted by Vila Rica Serviços Administrativos to develop a 30MW project, called UFV Luis Eduardo Magalhães, in the municipality of Luis Eduardo Magalhães in the Brazilian state of Bahia.
The second proposal was submitted by Querência Serviços Administrativos. The company is also seeking approval for a 30MW plant which it will develop in the city of Mombaça, in the state of Ceará. The project is called UFV Mombaça.
Brazil is rapidly becoming a solar hot spot in South America. The surge in interest is partly due to the Brazilian government’s introduction last year of a tax break for PV power plants up to 30MW in size.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that a group of unnamed European investors were seeking approval for a proposed 100MW solar project in São Paulo.
