The Brazilian Photovoltaic Solar Energy Association has released new figures on the impact that distributed generation can bring the electricity sector. According to the entity’s analysis, it adds up to more than R$ 150 billion ($26.7 bn) in the period only with the reduction of costs in the use of thermal plants. In the same period, it provides more than R$ 23 billion (£4.1 bn) in savings in electric losses in transmission, distribution and generation of electric energy in large plants.
