The solar parks have already been granted interconnection and contracts for the use of the transmission system has been signed with national grid operator ONS.

Pedro Fragoso, Partner at Exus Brazil, said: “We are delighted to have secured a deal for a highly significant project in the context of Brazil’s energy mix.”
