January 27 (Renewables Now) - French renewables business GreenYellow has delivered three new solar plants with a combined capacity of 14.2 MWp for the Brazilian operations of telecommunications company Claro SA.
The trio consists of a 4.46-MWp plant in Macaiba municipality, Rio Grande do Norte state, and the 2.36-MWp Barra do Jacare and the 7.37-MWp Ouro Verde solar parks, both in Sao Paulo state. The three assets are expected to generate 28.3 GWh of clean energy per year, enough to meet the demand of more than 14,000 homes.
The initiative is part of the Energia da Claro scheme which is the telecom company's clean energy programme.
Marcelo Xavier, GreenYellow's director-president in Brazil, said the company estimates it will connect another 14.2 MWp of solar projects for Claro in 2023.
By the end of 2022, GreenYellow had built nine solar plants for Claro with a combined capacity of 48 MWp, equivalent to an annual production of 123.1 GWh.
