China’s BYD to Supply Photovoltaic Modules to Brazil Solar Plant

BEIJING – Chinese renewable energy company BYD will supply photovoltaic modules for Brazil’s solar energy project in Guaimbe in Sao Paulo, the company said in a statement Thursday.

The Cobra group, subsidiary of the Spanish constructors ACS Group, headed by Florentino Perez, will be constructing the plant, with an installed capacity of 180 megawatts.

“We will be delivering some of the most efficient photovoltaic panels in the world,” said Tyler Li, general manager of BYD in Brazil, who added that the company has also contributed to the reduction of emissions in the South American country with its electric cars and buses that ply the streets of Brazil.

The Guaimbe project will have the largest solar plants in Sao Paulo, with the potential to supply to 60,000 households in the state.

“Brazil ranks among the countries with the largest solar generation potential in the world, and we are very happy to be leading the supply of solar modules for large projects in Brazil,” said Li.

In 2018, BYD will begin to sell modules manufactured in Brazilian territory, something that according to Li “will be a revolution in small and medium projects throughout the country.”
