The drawing of the solar project Estancia Guañizuil, which will be one of the largest solar generations in Argentina, will begin with the production of energy that will contribute to the national interconnected system on December 10th. It has an installed capacity of 80 MW and will serve to supply 55,000 homes. With a total investment of $ 103 million, the work will have an estimated useful life of 30 years.
The information was known yesterday during a visit made by Governor Sergio Unchak to the "Ginkgo Solar" project, which owns the investment through the SPE 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 has installed a total of 287,080 panels that will produce a kind of renewable energy that will support the development of sustainable agricultural and industrial enterprises by reducing the energy budget, reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere and due to provide greater energy independence. That is, after this project is underway, only home users will benefit, but production and industry will also be favored.
Cordillera Solar I S.A. a renewable energy tender was awarded, from the "Renovation Round 1.5" program, in November 2016 and in 2017, signed the Energy Supply Agreement with the Electricity Wholesale Company (Cammesa). The selected area, in the area of the Church, was chosen for its large solar resource, which is one of the best in the country and in the world.
The project involves the construction of a 132 kV high voltage electric line, 16 km away from the park to the Sadi link in Bauhaceta ET.
On this occasion, Governor Unak said that "there is a climate created between the public and the private sector with a deep commitment to continue thinking that the only social articulator is employment and therefore we are creating new niche markets."
Mayor Marcelo Marinero spoke about the contribution "for productive and economic development," while Fernando Mateo, director of the Jinko project, said that "it is the largest photovoltaic project that will be put into operation in the coming weeks at the national level."
Albarnone also has the photolactic park Las Lomitas, which opened in late October. It has a production 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 for renewable energy to be competitive with any other.
Argentina and the United States yesterday signed six letters of intent to fund energy and road infrastructure in which the OPIC, the financial institution of the US government, will contribute $ 800 million of the total investment of $ 3,000 million. Among them are the project of the Solar Park Ullum I, II and III, which is located right next to the San Juan San Solaris plant in Ulum.
