Brazil & Solar: Waking the Sleeping Giant


Hardly any other market in Latin America has the upside Brazil is promising. The country has 2.4 GW of solar projects in the pipeline, but the tremendous long-term potential for solar power has yielded only mediocre results. NEXTracker is uniquely positioned to help wake the sleeping giant.

Brazil is facing an energy shortage in the next two to three years — and no technology can increase generation as fast as solar. In its recently published climate goals, Brazil also committed to at least 7 GW of solar by 2024. Watch this Intersolar South America 2017 video here to learn more about NEXTracker’s business in this important solar market: 

One of the main factors holding solar developers and EPCs back in Brazil are the strict local content requirements. That’s a hurdle that we at NEXTracker can easily overcome because we leverage our mother company Flextronics’ manufacturing base in Sorocaba, São Paulo State. Read our latest blog on the topic here

We are offering a version of our industry-leading trackers that adheres to Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) guidelines. Solar farm developers and EPCs using our products have access to the local Development Bank’s credit lines. We also offer local spare parts inventory and technical support — or as we call it: the NEXTracker experience.
