SeeNews — Brazilian electricity sector regulator Aneel has allowed local firms to build and operate a 28.5-MW photovoltaic (PV) plant and 21.3 MW of biomass energy as independent power producers (IPPs), according to decrees published yesterday.

The solar plant of Sao Pedro e Paulo I SPE SA will be installed in Flores, Pernambuco state, with a net capacity of 24.37 MW. The company should start construction by February 1, 2015 and connect the facility to a substation of power distributor Celpe.

The 21.3-MW Rio Claro de Goias biomass plant will be built by Eber Bio-energia e Agricultura Ltda in Montes Claros, Goias, in the next 36 months. The unit will have a net capacity of 8.3 MW.

As IPPs, the operators will be able to sell surplus energy and distribute it to major consumers, paying concessionaires for the use of transmission lines.
