BRAZIL TO OPEN LATIN AMERICA’S BIGGEST SOLAR POWER PLANT

The new plant should provide energy to 268,000 homes by the time it's fully operational in 2017

In the Northeastern state of Bahia, the Italian company Enel Green Power is building what will be the biggest solar power plant in Latin American, with a potential annual production of roughly 550 gigawatts per hour. It is enough to meet the energetic needs of more than 268,000 homes.
The power company is investing $400 million in the Ituverava Plant, which should be fully operational by the end of 2017. Forecasts about Brazil’s increase in demand for electricity state that consumption will rise an average of 4% per year until 2020.
But the energy used in Brazil is much less “green” that it could be – especially in terms of solar energy. Our country is one of the few in the world receiving more than 3,000 hours of sunlight per year. In the Northeastern region, the daily average is even higher. However, only 0.0008% of the electricity produced in the country comes from solar powered plants. Experts point to the lack of incentive and clear public policies to stimulate the use of solar energy as the main reason for the underachievement.
Still, even with all of the underused solar energy potential, 42% of the energy produced in Brazil comes from renewable sources including wind, sun, and biodiesel.

  1. vitality utilized as a part of Brazil is significantly less "green" that it could be – particularly as far as sun oriented vitality. Our nation is one of only a handful few on the planet getting over 3,000 hours of daylight for every year. In the Northeastern area, the day by day normal is significantly higher.click here
