Icone Energia Solar

Solar Energy

Engenho Sanhaçu is the first in the country to use solar energy for its entire production. There are 31 photovoltaic photovoltaic plates. In the history of Brazil, the first existing mills were powered by human traction (slaves). Next came those powered by animal traction, water wheel, steam, and electric energy. And for the first time in our history we have a solar-powered mill. The other form of energy (thermal) used at Sanhaçu is also from a renewable source.

Energia Renovável

Renewable Energies

The photovoltaic plates of solar energy, besides supplying the agro the agro-industrial plant, they also supply domestic consumption. And part of the sugarcane bagasse is the source the boiler, transforming it into thermal energy.
