In partnership with EBES (Brazilian Solar Energy Company), Hydro provided & nbsp; its extruded profiles for the largest solar plant in Brazil and the first in the state of São Paulo to start operating this Tuesday (27), in Campinas, sp). The catchment system & nbsp; uses photovoltaic energy, obtained through direct conversion of sunlight into electricity. The production will integrate the electric grid from 2013.
The concessionaire predicts that the two types of slabs installed in the Tanquinho substation will be able to supply 657 customers monthly, which consume an average of 200 kWh.
The project approved by the National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel) received an investment of US $ 7 million and was developed by Companhia Paulista de Força e Luz (CPFL), with the help of the State University of Campinas (Unicamp) and companies spin-offs - which were derived from the institution itself.
The reduction in costs of solar panels due to the increase in volumes produced has led to the continued decline in the value of this type of renewable energy, and this is certainly a reason to celebrate!
Hydro Alumínio participates actively in ABINEE (Association of the Electrical and Electronic Industry), supporting actions to implement the use of Photovoltaic Energy in Brazil. Currently Hydro participates in about 15 projects that are part of the Association's pipeline.
