Brazil's power sector regulator Aneel on Tuesday approved six more winning renewable projects from the A-4 tender held on May 27, 2022, for a combined capacity of some 32.5 average megawatts (MWa).
The new approvals were granted to three solar and three small hydropower plants (HPPs).
According to the power watchdog, the energy contracted is aimed at supplying the demand of local power distributors Cemig, Coelba and Light.
A-4 awarded power purchase agreements (PPAs) with power supply scheduled to begin on January 1, 2026.
With this move, Aneel has approved a total of 26 of the 29 winning projects or about 218.1 MWa in total.
Overall, A-4 contracted some 947.9 MW of power, representing future investments of more than BRL 7 billion (USD 1.32bn/EUR 1.34bn), the Power Trading Chamber (CCEE) said in May.
