The growth in Brazil’s net metering segment continues, and PV installations under the program have already grown to over 60 MW. This includes more than 200 systems totaling around 2.5 MW installed in the last two weeks.
Brazil’s National Electrical Energy Agency (ANEEL) estimates that there are currently 7,853 renewable energy installations under net metering, with 7,761 of these corresponding to solar PV.
The Brazilian state with the most installations under the program is Minas Gerais, with 1,40 systems, followed by Sao Paulo with 1,388 systems and Rio Grande do Sul with 782 systems.
Last year 5,788 PV systems with a combined potential of 44.5 MW were connected to the grid in Brail, according to a new tool published by ANEEL. In 2015 only 1,361 systems were added in the country, with a combined potential of 8.7 MW.
Last year changes to the program were introduced at the national level, with a change to the period of exchange of credits to 36 months and an increase to the maximum capacity of installations to 5 MW. Additionally, at the regional level, the largest portion of Brazilian states have introduced in the last year and a half fiscal incentives for electricity generators under net metering.
