Brazil reaches 200,000 solar power connections

A new record has just been reached by Brazil. According to the Brazilian Association of Photovoltaic Solar Energy (ABSOLAR), the country has reached the historic milestone of 200,000 connections for distributed photovoltaic generation.

With this, the country now has 2.3 GW of installed capacity of distributed photovoltaic solar energy. Currently, this type of energy represents more than 99.8% of all distributed generation connections. With this, there are more than R$ 11.9 billion in investments accumulated and spread throughout the five national regions since 2012.

Despite the record, Brazil still has a long journey ahead. The percentage of solar energy still represents a small part of the national electricity market, composed of more than 84.4 million consumers, of whom only 0.3% use photovoltaic energy.
