Doña Carmen, Chile

Energía Cerro El Morado S.A. selected Solarcentury to design and build the ‘Doña Carmen’ solar project in La Ligua, the Valparaiso region of central Chile. The sizeable 40MWp system will produce enough energy to power the equivalent of 21,600 homes and will offset 22,490 tonnes of carbon dioxide.

The Doña Carmen project is structured as a power purchase agreement (PPA) over 15 years, to supply several distribution companies in Chile; 60% of solar energy generated by the solar system will be sold under this PPA agreement, and 40% will be sold to the spot market.
