From the burning of sugarcane bagasse, the Jitituba Energy Center started in 2002, in an experimental phase, to generate energy. From September 2007 on, it began to produce and commercialize energy on a large scale. In November 2007, it was authorized by the National Electric Energy Agency (ANEEL) to operate as a Thermoelectric Power Plant. This achievement was obtained by investing in the modernization of the powerhouse, and the installation of a third turbogenerator that allowed us to generate 15 MW/h. The energy generated is an important alternative supply in the face of crises in the energy sector. Our own consumption does not reach this amount. We currently export 40,000 MW / year, enough to supply a population of approximately 50,000 inhabitants. About 15 municipalities benefit from this generation. The energy we generate is produced from biomass, organic matter, which, in comparison with fossil fuels, generates less greenhouse gas emissions.
