Sao Paulo’s CPFL Renewable Energy (CPFL Energias Renovaveis) – which is the biggest Wind company in Brazil – currently  has only one solar pilot plant, that produces one  megawatt. But the company plans to invest heavily in solar, shortly adding another 450 megawatts, equivalent to one-third of the 1,300 megawatts of solar panels running nationalwide.

CPFL will try to turn its plan into reality next week, when Brazil will hold an auction for new power plants, the first round in two years, after a fall in demand prompted the government to cancel two auctions for solar power in 2016.
