Brazil’s National Electrical Energy Agency (Aneel) is seeking approval to build three additional photovoltaic (PV) plants in the central north region of the country.

If confirmed, the plants will have a combined capacity of 90 MW and represent the biggest solar power project in the country, according to a Energias Renovables report.

To-date the country only has a single solar plant in commercial operation, the Taua, which generates 1 MW. However, there are plans to raise its capacity to 5 MW next year and for it to eventually reach 50 MW of capacity.

An official time line for its expansion has not yet been set up, the report added.
