According to a statement released on Monday, EDPR will sell the output of the Monte Verde VI and the Boqueirao I-II onshore wind farms under a 20-year private contract.
Both projects are located in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Norte. The renewables arm of Portuguese power utility EDP - Energias de Portugal SA (ELI:EDP) said the wind farms were to start operations in 2022.
