Enel Green Power wins Brazilian solar contracts

Enel Green Power is to build two new solar photovoltaic plants in northeastern Brazil with an overall installed capacity of 11 MW.

The two plants, which will be located in Pernambuco State, will bring to 503 MW the total capacity Enel Green Power has been awarded in public tenders for wind and hydro projects in Brazil over the past four years.

The two latest projects, named Fonte Solar 1 and 2, are in the same area, where the company has an existing 80 MW wind project under construction, the Fontes dos Ventos Wind Farm, whose substation, under construction as well, will also receive the power generated by Fonte Solar 1 and 2.

Once operational, the two solar plants will be able to generate up to 17 GWh per year, thereby avoiding the emission of more than 5 thousand tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

The company, headed by Francesco Starace (pictured) has been granted 20-year bilateral energy contracts envisaging the sale of a fixed amount of power generated by the two photovoltaic plants to business customers in the Pernambuco State.

Meanwhile in Chile, Enel Green Power has begun construction works at “Diego de Almagro”, its first photovoltaic plant in Chile. The plant, located in the Atacama Region, will have a total installed capacity of 36 MW. Once fully up and running, the Diego de Almagro plant will be able to generate up to 80 GWh per year.
