Even representing the smallest part of the source used in the planet, the sun has endless and renewable capacity
Because it is a source, which in addition to being used anywhere it is also endless and renewable, it is estimated that the use of solar energy will grow fast in the next years. A study carried out by the International Energy Agency (IEA) states that the photovoltaic energy can account for a third of global electric power up to 2060.
If this market is not so used globally, in Brazil is the same. According to data from the Brazilian Solar Energy Atlas of the National Institute of Space Research (Inpe), the country presents an excellent solar resource, with potential of power generation between 1,500 and 2,350 kWh/m2/year.
Considering this scenario, large and small producers have taken advantage of this market in many ways. Companies have decided to take advantage of 482/2012 Aneel Normative Resolution, which allows anyone to exchange energy with the electricity grid. An example of this is Econ, which with a shared energy model has saved all the work of those who would like to be part of it, allowing these people a high profitability, without bureaucracy and even without knowledge on this area. Since every investment required for the implementation of a power plant is shared, consequently all become quota holders and receive a percentage of the business profitability.
With affordable investment quotas and an extremely attractive return rate of up to 30% per month, ECON is experiencing a vertiginous growth as the same pace as solar power around the world, which increases 1,300% per year.
The company has recently celebrated a new accomplishment when launching econbank, its own digital bank. The platform card has the same function as other banks, however, the main focus is on the shareholders, providing easier transactions, in addition to helping them to receive their income.
During the launch event of one of the company’s power plant in August this year, the CEO, Samir Gabriel, commented on the change of the energy market in the country and also praised the work that ECON has been developing.
“Brazil cannot depend on having enough water. It needs to diversify its energy matrix and in this context solar energy appears as an option. With 306 hectares and more than 345,000 panels, the farm will benefit not only Manga, but the entire region,” he said.
