The São Pedro solar plant has an installed capacity of 67.1p (megawatts peak) in two sub-plants. The plant’s 204,120 modules span over 150 hectares and are projected to generate 150 GWh annually, which can light up roughly 82,000 homes per year, and reduce the emission of more than 61,125 tons of carbon dioxide, according to the company’s own calculations. As part of Atlas Renewable Energy’s commitment to work with local communities during the construction, development, and operational phases of their plants, the São Pedro project created 696 direct jobs, while working with seven different rural communities. In addition, Atlas Renewable Energy offered community members educational and professional development programs including apiculture training, cultural relevance, and built two nursery gardens in local schools. These combined programs reached a total of more than 1,500 people in the local community.
