China-based BYD has connected its first rooftop solar project in Brazil. The PV system has been installed on the rooftop of the Brazilian Concessionária Ecorodovias highway toll station and has a capacity of 21kW. The installation was carried out by the EPC contractor Blue Sol Solar Energy, a Brazlian distributor of BYD products.
Following the success of this project, BYD are keen to expand its solar business in the country. The general manager of BYD PV, Tom Zhao, said, “Though the project is not big enough, it’s BYD’s first rooftop project in the region. Based on the project, we are going to develop more business here. In solar industry, BYD has its unique core competence, we believe it is a good start.”
Earlier this week, BYD announced that it had connected a 47MW PV project in Germany — a project developed in collaboration with Juwi Gruppe.
