Oct. 17 at 10:39 p.m., the effect of wind in Brazil's electricity grid reached a hitherto-unseen level at 12,140 MW, writes transmission system operator Operador Nacional do Sistema Elétrico (ONS). With a capacity factor of 79.3 percent, wind energy accounted for 18.6 percent of supply, despite the technology comprising only 9.5 percent of installed capacity in the South American country.

The now grid-connected project was established in collaboration with the Danish Investment Fund for Developing Countries (IFU).
