Solar Park starts construction in Piauí

Brazil will receive one of the largest photovoltaic energy projects in South America. The São Gonçalo Solar Park will operate in São Gonçalo do Gurgueia, Piauí. According to the company responsible, Enel Green Power Brazil, subsidiary of the Italian group Enel, will be invested R $1.4 billion for the realization of the works. The plant, which is already in the construction phase, must start its operations until 2020.

The plant has a total capacity of 475 MW, of which 388 MW were sold in the A4 auction, held in December 2017, in contracts for the supply of energy of 20 years. The other 87 MW will be destined for the free market.

Grupo Enel has two subsidiaries in Brazil, Enel Green Power and Enel Brasil, with total installed capacity of more than 2.9 GW from renewable energies, being 842 MW of wind energy, 820 MW of photovoltaic solar energy and 1,269 MW of water energy. In addition to 1GW running in Brazil, purchased at 2017 auctions.

The construction of the photovoltaic plant provides greater expectations of a growing development of renewable energy systems in the country. Despite long-term investment, the adequacy of solar energy in the market fights environmental threats and brings positive impacts to the national economy.
