Legal References:Decree N° 77/006
Description:

In 2006 the decree auctioned 20 MW for wind power, 20 MW for biomass and 20 MW for mini-hydro. The individual generators were not allowed to exceed a power of 10MW.

The decree states that the National Electricity Utility (UTE) will auction special contracts for purchase contracts that provide energy from wind, biomass or small-hydro.

The generators could not sell their electricity to third parties other than to UTE and they had to bear all costs for the connection. However, while in contract, they were not supposed to pay any transmission and distribution fees.
