Furnas announces solar power contract

Eletrobras Furnas announced the hiring of 15 solar energy projects for commercialization from 2024. In total, there will be 1,000 megawatts of installed power, distributed between the states of Bahia, Ceará and Paraíba.

"The increased participation of solar and wind energy in the electric matrix is a worldwide phenomenon. In Brazil, which has one of the cleanest matrices in the world, it cannot be different, because we still have a lot of potential to develop. Eletrobras companies, with 96% of their generation based on clean energy, are important drivers of the low-carbon economy," said Wilson Ferreira Junior, President of Eletrobras.

The decision was the result of an auction held last week by the state, for long-term purchase of electricity encouraged by new developments of wind and solar sources in the Free Contracting Environment (ACL). "Our intention is to do good business with the resale of energy and help in the expansion of the electricity sector, even without directly participating in the construction of new ventures," concluded Pedro Brito, President of Furnas.
