Palmas Solar Program
To improve its solar power capacity, the city of Palmas in Brazil adopted a strategy and in 2015 launched the Palmas Solar Program. Reaffirming the city’s commitment to sustainable development, the program offers tax incentives for households and businesses to install photovoltaic panels and become small-scale energy producers. Through this program, the city expects to maximize the share of renewables in the energy mix and become a national leader in installed solar capacity by 2022.
