Solar energy grows 70% in Brazil despite pandemic and attracts large companies

Solar generation facilities in Brazil jumped from 70% in the year to 7.5 gigawatts (GW), almost half the capacity of the Itaipu hydroelectric plant.

Companies such as China’s CGN, Norway’s Statkraft and VRTM said their next projects in Brazil should involve photovoltaic plants.
