LONGi has supplied 11.7MW of innovative solar modules to a PV plant within the Parque Fotovoltaico Libertadores in Los Andes Province, Chile, which is now supplying electricity to the local grid.
LONGi was selected as the sole module supplier for the project.
The plant, covering 24.4 hectares, was developed by D ‘E Capital and constructed by EPC company Orion Power, with an investment of $12 million.
There are 28,720 units of LONGi high-efficiency solar modules deployed at this PMGD (Pequeños Medios de Generación Distribuidos) project, with a projected service life of 30 years.
“Today we are inaugurating a PV plant that will inject 11.7MW of electricity into our national grid and will enable 9,000 households to receive clean and renewable energy from the Rinconada Community.” The Parque Fotovoltaico Libertadores project fulfils specific objectives compared with others, continued Lopez. “It has driven the development of a labor force and service sector, created a large number of jobs, and laid a solid foundation for our economic recovery.”Francisco Lopez, Chile’s Deputy Secretary for Energy.
“We are very happy to have LONGi solar modules deployed at the project. LONGi’s state-of-the-art solar technology will maximize the benefits of South America’s abundant solar resources and reduce environmental pollution, quickening the pace of energy transition and sustainable development in Chile.”Dennis She, senior VP, LONGi Solar.
