Brazil's Desa gets paid for idle plants

Brazil's power regulator, Aneel will allow Desa to receive payments for the Eurus I and Eurus III wind farms backdated to January 1 2014, even though the two 30MW plants are idle due to lack of connections to the grid.

According to Brazilian regulations, if wind plants are ready and do not have a grid connection due to reasons out of control of the developer, they have a right to charge revenue from the government.

The two wind plants are located in the state of Rio Grande do Norte and await the completion of the João Câmara III substation by transmission company ETN. That is scheduled for September, according to government projections.

Up to then, Desa will be able to receive revenue.
