Enel Latin América (Chile), a developer of renewable energy projects and the Chilean subsidiary of Italy-based Enel Green Power, is seeking approval for a 122MW PV plant and has submitted plans to the Chilean environmental authority, Servicio de Evaluación Ambiental (SEA).

The project, called Sol de Lila, will be constructed in the Antofagasta region in northern Chile and require an investment of approximately US$285 million. It will cover an area of 357.7 hectares and be equipped with 408,114 PV modules.

When operational, the plant will generate an estimated 299GWh of electricity annually. Output generated from the plant will be fed into the Northern Interconnected System (SING) grid.

If approval is sought, construction of the project is expected to begin at the end of October 2013.
