According to PV-Tech news, Atlas Renewable Energy has inaugurated its first operational PV project in Brazil, with the company completing the 67.1MW São Pedro solar plant in Bom Jesus da Lapa, located within the state of Bahia.
Construction began in January 2017 for the installation, which is split between a pair of sub-plants. Financing for the site was secured through the Banco do Nordeste (BNB), along with an equivalent sum of commercial bank guarantees from BTG Pactual, Banco ABC Brasil, and Banco Bradesco.
This energy output can power roughly 82,000 homes per year, while also cutting the emission of more than 61,125 tons of carbon dioxide. The São Pedro project created 696 direct jobs during its construction, while announcing other programs in the community that reached more than 1,500 individuals.
Atlas Renewable Energy’s Brazilian portfolio features another three projects currently under construction and development, namely Juazeiro and Sertão Solar in the state of Bahia, and Sol do Futuro, in Ceará. ——————–***——————–
