Solar plant opens in Caldas Novas (GO)

This Saturday (29), a photovoltaic power plant was inaugurated in Caldas Novas (GO). The opening ceremony was attended by President Jair Bolsonaro and state governor Ronaldo Caiado. The investment belongs to Grupo Di Roma and aims to guarantee clean and sustainable energy for the region. The plant has a capacity of 5.6 million Watt-peak (Wp), capable of serving 4,265 homes. According to the Ministry of Mines and Energy, it is one of the largest solar generation parks in Brazil.

The event was also attended by Minister Bento Albuquerque, from the Ministry of Mines and Energy. He pointed out that, in Brazil, the share of electricity that comes from clean and renewable sources is much higher than the world average. Here, much of it comes from sources such as hydroelectric, solar and wind power. Most of the world comes from non-renewable sources, such as coal or fossil fuel derivatives.

The Ministry of Mines and Energy emphasizes the importance of renewable sources in preserving the environment. "In 20 years, the plant inaugurated today will prevent around 12,053 tons of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere. This is equivalent to the planting of 956 thousand trees ", highlights the folder.
