The Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy has given priority status to a 22-MW solar power project owned by Paris-based independent power producer (IPP) Total Eren SA.
With the permit, the Pajeu 1 photovoltaic (PV) project can now issue debentures, according to the degree published by the ministry on Monday.
Located in the northeastern Bahia state, the solar power plant will consist of 22 generation units, each with an individual capacity of 1 MW. Pajeu 1 is scheduled to commence operations by March 2025.
Recently, the IPP’s parent company, French multi-energy group TotalEnergies SE (EPA:TTE), signed an agreement to create a joint venture with Brazilian renewable energy developer Casa dos Ventos to develop, build and operate 12 GW of wind and solar parks in the South American country.
