Neoenergia acts to be the energy that moves and illuminates the lives of people with solidity, modernity and experience in clean and renewable energy generation in Brazil. So, we have a commitment to the environment and invest more in renewable sources, so that, increasingly, the electricity sector walk toward a sustainable future.
We have, today, 17 parks in operation, with an installed capacity of approximately 516 MW – enough energy to power more than 770,000 homes, avoiding the emission of more than 830,000 tons of CO ² in the atmosphere. Our investments are based on improving the quality of life in surrounding communities of wind farms.
Last year, we increased 55% in our capacity in wind power projects and we will still deploy 15 wind farms in Paraiba. These, together with the 3 parks already in operation in the region, will form the largest wind farms in the State, with 565.5 MW of installed power.
In addition to excellence in energy production, the wind farms of the Group Neoenergia generate thousands of direct and indirect jobs during construction, and continue contributing to the socioeconomic development of the regions in which it operates, even after entry into operation. The parks also promote the injection of money into the local economy by paying monthly rentals for the owners of the land.
We develop projects thinking about health, education, income generation, appreciation of local culture and a better future for people living in the areas of expertise of the Group Neoenergia. Contribute to a sustainable future is our commitment.
