Around 2 GW of this capacity comes from large-scale PV plants and another 2 GW from distributed-generation PV systems, which in Brazil include all installations up to 5 MW.

The country hit 41 GW of cumulative installed PV capacity at the end of March. Utility-scale plants represent 13 GW of the total, while distributed-generation resources make up 28 GW.
