Enel invested about $287m in the construction of the complex, which powers over 200,000 homes in Brazil.

A power purchase agreement (PPA) for 30 years has been entered, under which the power generated from the plant will be sold to a group of energy distributing companies in the country. During the development of the project, EGPB installed a 1.2 MW solar PV facility, which supplied power during the construction period.
