The Estancia Guañizuil Solar Project Church, which will become one of the largest solar energy producers in Argentina, will begin producing energy that will help create the National Interconnected System on December 10. It has an installed capacity of 80 MW and will supply 55,000 homes. With a total investment of 103 million dollars, the work will have an estimated useful life of 30 years.
This information was known yesterday during the visit of the Governor Sergio Uniak to the Jinko Solar project, which owns the enterprise through the Society for Specified Purposes (CEFE) Cordillera Solar I S.A. It is located on the edge of Route 150, which leads to Paso de Agua Negra, 5 km from Las Flores, in Iglesia.
The project will install 287,080 panels that will produce renewable energy, which will contribute to the development of sustainable agricultural and industrial enterprises by reducing the budget allocated to energy, reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere and will provide greater energy independence. That is, as soon as this project is implemented, not only home users will benefit, but also production and industry.
Cordillera Solar I S.A. He was awarded a tender for renewable energy starting with the Renovate Round 1.5 program, in November 2016 and in 2017 he signed a contract for the supply of energy with the electricity wholesale management company (Cammesa). The selected area in the Church area was chosen for its large solar resource, being one of the best in the country and the world.
The project includes the construction of a high-voltage electrical line with a voltage of 132 kV, 16 kilometers in length, running from the park to the connection to Sadi in Bauchaceta ET.
On this occasion, Governor Unyak said that "there is a climate created between the public and private sectors, with deep commitment to continue to think that employment is the only social articulator, and that is why we are creating new market niches."
Mayor Marcelo Marinero told about the contribution “to productive and economic development”, and Fernando Mateo, director of the Jinko project, stressed that “this is the largest photovoltaic project to be launched in the coming weeks at the national level”
> In Albardone
The Albardón also has a photovoltaic park Las Lomitas, which was opened in late October. It has a generating capacity of 2.5 MW and requires an investment of 2.5 million Pesos. Entrepreneurship will mean clean energy for more than a thousand homes and is part of the National Renewable Energy Plan, which has more than 200 such initiatives in the country. The official intention is to make renewable energy competitive with any other.
Yesterday, Argentina and the United States signed six letters of intent to finance energy operations and road infrastructure in which the United States Foreign Investment Organization (OPIC), a financial institution of the US government, will contribute $ 800 million out of a total investment of $ 3,000 million. Among them is the Solar Park Ullum I, II and III project, located next to the state-owned plant in San Juan, in Ullum.
