In February 2023, 890 wind plants were registered in Brazil, for a total installed capacity of over 25 GW. This is expected to reach 29 GW by the end of 2023, and almost 45 GW by 2028, in a decisively positive shift for both the population and the environment. In addition to generating clean electricity, wind farms have been shown to improve the economic standing and quality of life of the regions in which they are located.
