Chile's environmental authorities have approved a plan of local cement maker Cemento Polpaico SA  for the construction of a 23.5-MW photovoltaic (PV) park as part of the central system SIC.

The approval, published on Friday, envisages the installation of 243,120 modules near Cemento Polpaico's Cerro Blanco industrial plant in Tiltil, Chacabuco province. The solar facility will require an initial investment of US$42m (EUR 38.9m) and its energy will be injected into the grid through the existing interconnection with the Punta Peuco substation. The annual output is estimated at 44GWh. (Source: SeeNews)
