Additionally, the company has part of its wind and solar pipeline under development, still under negotiation, which could add up to 1.5 GW of installed capacity.

The company pointed out that it has not defined or approved, so far, the effective execution of the offer, which is subject, among other factors, to obtaining the necessary approvals.
