Brazil's Copel to include 4.5 MWp of solar panels next to substations
- Brazilian power energy Companhia Paranaense de Energia (BVMF: CPLE6), much better called Copel, prepares to develop 4.5 MWp of solar plants beside substations to produce energy and also counter a portion of its very own consumption.
The energy will use a bidding procedure to award the construction of the 2.6-MWp Umuarama, the 1.4-MWp Arapongas, and the 0.7-MWp Paranacity photovoltaic (PV) parks.
When up and running, the triad must can producing clean electrical power volumes equal to the power demand of 5,000 property clients.
From a technical perspective, these PV parks are unique in Brazil, the company claimed and explained that they will certainly enable it to control a variety of essential parameters of the interconnection between the solar panels and the substation, such as voltage as well as power variable.
