Power in Brazil
Brazil had 1,601MW of grid-connected solar power at the end of June 2018, according to a monthly bulletin on the monitoring of the electric system from the Brazilian ministry of energy and mines (MEM). This capacity is represented by 1,307MW of large-scale PV projects, selected in auctions held by the Brazilian government, and 296MW of distributed generation solar power generators (up to 5MW).
At the end of June 2017, utility-scale solar reached a share of just 145MW, while DG installations totaled 92MW. Over the past 12 months, a total of 1.36GW was connected to the country’s grid, with strong growth in both segments. Most of this 1.36GW, however, was installed in the second half of 2017.
