Latin America's First Solar Soccer Stadium: Pituaçu Stadium in Salvador da Bahia

A 403 kW solar array will be installed on the roof of Pituaçu Stadium in Salvador da Bahia, the third largest city in Brazil. Gehrlicher Ecoluz Solar do Brasil S.A has been awarded a contract for the planning and construction of the photovoltaic system, the first on a soccer stadium in Latin America.

The project will utilise flexible lightweight solar panels made by Uni-Solar and monocrystalline modules manufactured by Yingli. This isn't Yingli's first brush with soccer - in 2010, Yingli became the first renewable energy company in history to sponsor the FIFA World Cup
