June 21 (Renewables Now) - Renewables company Enel Green Power Chile said that it is now building some 32.4 MWp of small-scale solar farms in Chile under its partnership with Spain-based PV developer IM2 Solar.
These projects are part of their first portfolio of small-scale distributed generation schemes known in Chile as PMGDs, Enel Green Power said.
Of the 11 projects in the bundle, four solar farms have already been connected, five for a total of 32.4 MWp are now under construction and two 10-MWp schemes are in the permitting stages.
For Enel Green Power, PMGDs can improve flexibility and the system’s resilience, and contribute to the transition towards a clean energy mix, which is why the company wants to continue promoting the small-scale format, commented Andres Assar, Enel Green Power Chile’s coordinator of the renewables business development.
Pablo Maestri , CEO of IM2 Solar, added that these projects are just the beginning of a long-term relationship between the two companies.
