Miami-based Conergy has secured 60 MW of solar power development projects for itself in Brazil's national auction.
Conergy's two projects, which will receive 20-year power purchase agreements, are located in the northeastern Brazilian municipality of Paraiba. The company says the sites are near local points of interconnection. Construction is set to begin in early 2017, with interconnection scheduled for August 2017.
The Paraiba projects are Conergy's first utility-scale projects in Brazil, which the company says is a regional priority for future solar development.
‘With our global development platform, we look forward to entering exciting markets such as Brazil to grow our portfolio," says Alexander Gorski, Conergy's chief development officer.Â
