    New photovoltaic power plant is inaugurated in Minas Gerais

    May 19, 2023 - CE Noticias Financieras


      Last Tuesday (May 16), the municipality of Carmo da Cachoeira, located in the South of Minas Gerais, was the stage for the launch of a new photovoltaic power plant. The initiative came from Coopmetro, a transportation cooperative that aims to promote energy self-sufficiency and carbon footprint reduction.

      The inauguration ceremony was attended by local authorities, representatives of the OCEMG System, members of the community, and employees of Coopmetro. During the event, the importance of this initiative for sustainable development and for the preservation of the environment in the municipality was emphasized. Coopmetro's new photovoltaic power plant has a projected production of 4.5 MegaWatts, which is equivalent to an estimated value of R$10 million. With this capacity, the plant will be responsible for supplying the current energy needs of Nossa Senhora do Carmo Hospital, besides meeting the energy demands of the cooperative itself.

      The president of Coopmetro, Marcos Leisson, emphasized the importance of the plant for the production of clean and sustainable energy. He pointed out, "With the inauguration of the photovoltaic power plant, we are taking an important step toward sustainability and environmental responsibility, strengthening our long-term energy capacity."
