Aneel okays Renova delays

Brazil's power regulator, Aneel, has agreed to postpone the start of commercial operations at six Renova Energia wind farms because of a lack of grid connections.

Operations at the 30MW Seraíma, Araçás and Morão, the 24MW Tanque and the 19.5MW Ventos do Nordeste and Prata has been put back to mid-May.

The projects in the northeast state of Bahia are close to completion.

Aneel agreed to the postponement to align the start of commercial operations with the conclusion of the construction of the Igaporã 2 substation and link to the grid, which is being built by federal power company Chesf.

The six wind farms sold power in 2010 and should have started last September. Renova has been seeking a postponement since last year in local courts after the government changed the grid connection layout.
