Sept. 22 (Bloomberg) — Brazilian wind-energy projects
Verace 26 and Ventos de Santo Onofre I were allowed to sell tax-exempt bonds under a government incentive program for

the Energy Ministry, according to a note published in the
official gazette today. The ministry’s note didn’t provide
information on values or sale terms.

shareholders included investment fund Salus, state-run utility
Centrais Eletricas Brasileiras SA’s Chesf unit and wind-power
