Project Brief

With a nominal power of 60 MW, Coromandel photovoltaic plant occupies a total area of 193.21ha and is divided into two (02) plants called UFV Coromandel 1 and UFV Coromandel 2. The operation is located in Fazenda Bonito de Baixo, municipality of Coromandel, in the Triangle Region of State Minas Gerais, Brazil.

The project activity will deliver 168.140 MWh/year of renewable electricity to the National Interconnected System (Sistema Interligado Nacional - SIN). In the baseline scenario, electricity delivered to the grid by the project activity would have been generated by the operation of grid-connected power plants and by the addition of new generation sources, as reflected in the combined margin (CM) calculations. Hence, the project activity will promote GHG emissions reductions by displacing fossil fuel-based electricity generation that would otherwise occur.
