Project brings solar energy to Mato Grosso do Sul

A new solar energy project, called Ilumina Pantanal, will bring electricity to about 5,000 people in the Pantanal, in Mato Grosso do Sul, by 2022. According to the state government, which presented the project on the last day 2, all investments will not cost the consumer's pocket, which will bear only the social tariff.

In all, 2,167 consumer units will benefit from Ilumina Pantanal, distributed among the municipalities of Corumbá, Aquidauana, Coxim, Ladário, Porto Murtinho, Rio Verde and Miranda. Of this group, 77 families have already been served by conventional distribution network, and now, 2,090 will be served by individual systems whose energy source is solar.

The Secretary of Agriculture of Mato Grosso do Sul, Jaime Verruck, participated in the solemnity and said that the project arose from the legal obligation of universalization of electricity.
