Renewable energy firm EDF Energies Nouvelles said it had commissioned its 115MWp Santiago Solar PV power plant in Chile. 

The Santiago Solar PV power plant is EDF Energies Nouvelles second largest in Chile, having completed the 146MWp Bolero plant in late 2017. The latest completed plant is located around 50 km north of country’s capital and has deployed around 400,000 PV modules and occupies over 200 hectares of land.

EDF Energies Nouvelles said the Santiago Solar plant held a 15-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with Chile’s main distributors with an unspecified amount of electricity being sold through Chile’s electricity spot market. The plant is connected to Chile’s national electricity grid (SEN, Sistema Electrico Nacional).

The facility is jointly owned on a 50-50 basis by EDF Energies Nouvelles and Andes Mining Energy (AME), a Chilean infrastructure developer.
