Abstract. The presence of aerosols in atmosphere has the potential to decrease the efficiency of solar photovoltaic energy generation. The central region of Brazil presents a remarkable growth of these aerosols between March and October, when the region undergoes a period of intensive slash and burn agriculture. This paper aims to evaluate the impact of this anthropogenic aerosol on electric power generation by comparing data from geostationary satellites with photovoltaic power generation data.
