July 10 (Renewables Now) - Brazil's power sector regulator Aneel has given the go-ahead to three Total Eren solar power plants with a combined capacity of 81 MW to start test operations.
The Dracena 1, 2 and 4 photovoltaic (PV) parks were granted permission to commence initial tests, with each of them having eight units with an individual capacity of 3.375 MW.
Located in Sao Paulo state, these solar facilities are part of a 90-MWp complex, according to the French renewables developer's website.
Under Aneel's guidelines, after their test period, if these plants present positive results, they will be allowed to proceed to commercial operations.
In all, the French company, through its local arm Eren do Brasil, currently holds a 140-MWp solar portfolio, including operating and in-development parks.
