February 12 (Renewables Now) - Brazilian renewable energy firm Envo has completed the construction works of its 1.12 MW photovoltaic (PV) plant in Sao Paulo state.

Consisting of 3,320 solar modules, the PV facility required BRL 4.6 million (USD 1m/EUR 972,000) in investments, the unit of CPFL Energias Renovaveis SA (BVMF:CPRE3) announced.

Located in a 16,840-sq-m area in Americana town, the Fazenda Solar de Americana plant should be able to generate enough clean power to meet the demand of 738 local homes and offset some 131 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, Envo noted.
