From commercial operation to top 10 rank in two months

The Milagres solar project began operation in December 2023. Within two months, the project had achieved its status as a top ten renewable energy generator. This success was made possible through the in-house expertise of our engineering, procurement, construction (EPC) and asset management teams.

Our specialised experts, including those in engineering, system integration allowed us to streamline the process, mitigate any challenges and execute to deliver a high-performing solar asset.

“Seeing the Milagres project as one of the best performing projects in the Northeast of Brazil, shows the ability of the Lightsource bp team to deliver excellent results in practice, also reinforcing its leadership position in the renewables market in Brazil and the global energy transition,” said Ricardo Barros, Country Manager, Brazil at Lightsource bp.

We are committed to contributing to the energy transition to meet the rising demand for affordable, reliable and sustainable energy.

The ranking is based on “the capacity factor (FC) on a monthly basis; FC equals energy generation / (installed power * number of hours of the month)”
