Solar energy sector can generate more than 145,000 jobs

That Brazil has great capacity to generate solar energy, we all already know. There are more than 2,000 hours of contact between sunlight and The Brazilian territory, which brings an energy potential of 15 trillion megawatts-hours – a number that exceeds the national electricity consumption by 50,000 times.
