Wind energy has the participation of 9% in the electrical matrix of the country and is the third most used source, and it already arrives to meet, with its production, almost 14% of the national interconnected System (SIN) – Responsible for the production and transmission of electricity from Brazil.

The Abeeolica also reported that Rio Grande do Norte follows as the highlight in this type of source, and the largest producer in the country, with a capacity of 4,043.1 GW, in its 150 parks.
