Brazilian power company Eletron Energy has partnered with compatriot Kroma Energia to build a 101-MWp solar farm complex in the state of Pernambuco, north-east Brazil.
Construction of the project, named Sao Pedro e Paulo, started on June 1, Eletron said on its LinkedIn page. The company plans to commission the plant in mid-June 2023.
The complex will consist of four solar farms -- the smallest of them is a 6.89-MWp scheme and the largest is the 34.43-MWp Sao Pedro e Paulo I facility. Kroma Energia secured a contract in Brazil’s A-4 2018 auction to sell part of the output from Sao Pedro e Paulo I to the regulated market.
As much 70% of power generated by the 101-MWp will be sold to the free market, Eletron added.
