March 14 (Renewables Now) - Brazilian solar project developer Sices Brasil, together with local university Unoeste, switched on a 3.12-MWp photovoltaic (PV) plant earlier this week.

Located in Unoeste's campus II in the city of Presidente Prudente, the PV facility required more than BRL 12 million (USD 3.1m/EUR 2.8m) in investments. It is the largest in the state built under the distributed generation (DG) model. Its output will be used to meet the demand of the campus II, the university stated, adding that any surplus would be directed to campus I.

In all, Unoeste's solar plant is expected to offset 2,656 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually.

(BRL 1 = USD 0.26/EUR 0.23)
