Enel Green Power inaugurates 10.8 MW photovoltaic park in Chile
Enel Green Power announced the inauguration of the La Colonia photovoltaic park in Chile with an installed capacity of 10.8 MW in the form of a Small Means of Distributed Generation (PMGD), its first renewable project within the Metropolitan Region.
This new 100% clean energy generation plant, located in the municipality of Buin, required an investment of US$7.7 million.
La Colonia photovoltaic park features a total of 23,490 photovoltaic bifacial panels of 460 Wp each, and it is expected to generate 23,550 MWh annually, enough energy to power around 10,000 Chilean homes.
To date, EGP’s PMGD portfolio consists of 17 projects, of which nine are already connected and eight are under construction, totaling 83 MW.
Over the next few years, Enel Green Power and IM2 Solar plan to continue growing in this segment.
Fabrizio Barderi, general manager of Enel Chile, said:
“Bringing renewable energy closer to large consumption centers and thus to people efficiently and equitably is one of the main reasons that prompted us to enter the segment of Small Means of Distributed Generation. This format provides greater flexibility in construction, connection to distribution networks, and space. Since they are smaller, they consider using more limited areas.”
Pablo Maestri, Im2 Solar Chile CEO, said:
“As Im2 Solar, we are delighted with our joint work with our strategic partner Enel. We have complemented each other’s experiences in both sectors, always in the direction of NCRE growth, mainly in the PMGD segment.”
