May 21 (Renewables Now) - The Brazilian capital Brasilia inaugurated on Monday its largest solar power plant, which required investments of BRL 26 million (USD 6.3m/EUR 5.7m).

The venture is a public private partnership (PPP) between the government and the Brazilian company RZK Energia together with telecom Grupo Claro. The plant consists of 18,000 solar panels and has an annual generation of more than 11,000 MW.
