Spanish module manufacturer, Solaria Energia Brazil has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Brazillian utility Iguaçú Geração de Energia.
The MoU is for a proposed 100MW of solar projects, as either one utility-scale solar farm, or in smaller projects.
Solaria already has 3MW in solar projects in Minas Gerais, Brazil, constructed in 2012.
Iguaçú Geração de Energia provides energy for a region of more than 80,000 inhabitants in the municipalities of Xanxerê, Xaxim, Maremma, Entre Rios, Bom Jesus, and part of Great Lageado Ipuaçu, Mountain Range High and Colonel Freitas.
The MoU signing follows increasingly encouraging news from Brazil's emerging solar market. It recently included solar in its energy tender auctions for the first time and then announced new renewables incentives.
