EDPR obtains 20-year PPAs in Brazil

EDPR secured a 20-year contract in December for two projects totaling 219 MW. Renewable energy will be generated at two wind farms, which will be implemented in the Brazilian state of Río Grande del Norte: Santa Rosa and Mondo Novo, with a registered capacity of 121.8MW; and Aventura, with 9.71MW.

With this new agreement, EDPR has guaranteed power purchase agreements for wind farms with a capacity of 482MW in Brazil (currently in the construction and development phase) that will begin operation in 2017, 2018 and 2023.

With its success in this tender, EDP reinforces its presence in the Brazilian market—characterized by a low-risk profile—through the execution of long-term power purchase agreements.
