SunEdison is set to build a PV panel manufacturing plant in Brazil.
The U.S. company will produce the panels for use in solar farms that it plans to build in the country, according to Reuters, which cited Luis Pita, SunEdison’s general director for Brazil.
SunEdison will decide on the location and size of the new plant in the coming weeks, Pita said.
The Missouri-based company operates a joint venture with Brazil’s Renova Energia SA, with which it is looking to build PV farms in the country. The SunEdison-Renova JV has secured licenses for 167 MW of new PV installations that are expected to begin producing power by 2017.
