Does Brazil consider itself an eco friendly country?

    Brazil is certainly trying to be eco-friendly so it’s likely that they think they are.  For starters almost 70% of Brazil’s energy industry is green because it comes from hydroelectric plants and their plans for using wind energy are commendable.

    The Incentive Program for Alternative Sources of Electric Energy was established in 2004 with the hopes of creating wind energy farms that would power up to 10% of Brazil’s energy needs.  There are currently 50 farms established with another 90 in the works.  These farms are mainly supported by the Brazilian Development Bank.  The largest benefit for wind farms that Brazil has over other countries is that there are extreme high winds during their dry seasons which perfectly complements the timing that their hydroelectric plants produce less energy.
