Project Details


The project will feature 252,000 polycrystalline solar panels of 280wp each spread over an area of 141ha. Upon completion the plant will boast 140GWh per year that will be injected to the country's northern SING grid though a substation and a tap-off connection at the Central Chapiquiña–Arica (66kV) stretch. Construction of El Águila plant could be divided in up to three stages, depending on the demand for energy in the North of Chile.
