In 2006, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, the Osório wind farm went into operation. With 150 MW of installed capacity, it was, at that time, the largest wind power generation complex in Latin America. In April of that year, President Lula was on site to inaugurate operations at the first tower. By December of that year, 75 towers had been installed. However, by the close of 2015, Rio Grande do Sul will be home to a wind farm that will assume the title of largest in Latin America – the Campos Neutrais Wind Complex.
