Canadian Solar inaugurates factory in São Paulo

The Canadian solar, which manufactures solar panels, inaugurated a factory in Sorocaba, São Paulo. The new plant is considered the largest photovoltaic panels factory in Brazil, able to deliver annually about 400 MW of modules made entirely in national territory.

The company's coming to produce in Brazil was through the support of the Brazilian Agency for the promotion of exports and investments (APEX), with conversations initiated in 2012. Currently, less than 1% of the energy produced in Brazil comes from the sun, an index far below the government's goal for the next 25 years, which is to exceed 30%.
