Tax break paves way for 6.5MW PV plant in Brazil

A 6.5MW PV power plant is to be built in Brazil with the help of a sales tax break that was announced last year. The project will be built in Votuporanga in the north west of São Paulo state. At the end of 2013, São Paulo’s state government announced a moratorium on sales tax for solar energy equipment. The sales tax can climb as high as 25% for some products.
