GDSun - our journey in distributed solar power generation


Contribute to the energy transition of our clients, through creative and sustainable models of distributed power generation, promoting growth and democratization of solar energy in Brazil.


Be the market leader, recognized for the best and most trusted partnership in distributed power generation solutions in Brazil.


Integrity, ethics and transparency;

People and environment respect;

Simplicity and austerity;

Focus on outcome;

Nonconformity and continuous search for excellence;

Innovation and creativity.

We operate in the entire process of development, construction, generation and energy supply in solar power plants that operate in the captive market, within the limits of distributed minigeneration, participating in the credit compensation system. In this model, the energy generated in the plants is commercialized directly to medium and large customers, from diverse sectors, through long-term contracts.


Distributed Generation, in addition to encouraging the diversification of the Brazilian energy matrix, in line with the growing interests of society to migrate to a low carbon emission economy and environmental preservation, provides economic gains for companies that adhere to this type of contract.

We started our operation in 2020 and were born with the experience and knowledge in the sector of our investors and controllers.


With this, in less than a year, we have expanded our participation in distributed solar generation with the announcement of investments in the construction of new solar power plants.
