Wind farms in the Brazilian Northeast have surpassed 100% of the region’s load with a registered peak generation of 11,715 MW on July 12.
More specifically, the wind power output in the region was enough to supply 106.8% of the entire region at 0928 local time, the National Electric System Operator (ONS) announced on Monday.
This is the third time the region breaks its generation records in less than a week. The previous one was on July 9, with 11,464 MW produced at 2400 local time, enough to meet 100.8% of local consumption. On the previous night, the Northeast wind farms also generated 11,548 MW, which was enough to meet 99.2% of the region's load at the time.
According to data from ONS, the Brazilian wind parks will be able to generate enough power to account for 13.2% of the country's whole electrical mix by end-2025.
