Project Details


The project arises from the need to produce energy to supply the increasing national and local demand, using a clean and renewable source which helps to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. For this reason, the solar radiation, an abundant resource in Coquimbo region, will be transformed into electricity using photovoltaic panels.

Caracas involves the construction and operation of a solar plant formed by 79,200 photovoltaic modules to produce 20MW. The energy produced will be injected to the SIC grid, using a 23kV transmission line. During the construction phase 100 temporary construction jobs will need to be filled, while during the operational phase of the project around 10 permanent jobs will be created.
