Enel Chile has received the green light from the National Electricity Coordinator to launch commercial operations for the 204-megawatt Domeyko photovoltaic solar plant.
Located in the Atacama Desert in the Antofagasta Region of Chile, the solar park already delivers renewable energy to the National Electric System.
The operation of Domeyko will inject about 590 gigawatt hours into the National Electric System annually, avoiding the emission of more than 465,000 tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gasses.
Through the installed capacity and 100 percent renewable electricity generation of the photovoltaic park, Domeyko will supply energy to about 251,000 Chilean homes.
“Through this important milestone, we continue to incorporate more renewable capacity to our generation matrix, giving continuity to our development plan, through which we seek to add 1.9 gigawatts of new capacity by 2025,” said Fabriz
