Several wind farms, totalling 1.2 GW in capacity, which have been authorised by Aneel, the electricity regulatory agency in Brazil, and are ready for operation do not have the necessary connections to the transmission network.

The wind farms are all located in the state of Rio Grande do Norte and include Asa Branca (160 MW), Calango (150 MW) and Sao Bento do Norte (94 MW).

State-owned Companhia Hidroeletrica do Sao Francisco (Chesf) is in charge of the construction of the power lines and substations, but when the work will be completed is unknown, according to a report in Energias Renovables.
