Solar Project Estancia Guañizuil, one of the largest solar generations in Argentina, will begin to produce energy that will contribute to the national interconnected system on December 10. It has an installed capacity of 80 MW and will supply 55,000 households. With a total investment of $ 103 million, work will have an estimated lifespan of 30 years.
The information was announced yesterday during a visit by Governor Sergio Uñac to Jinko Solar, a company owned by Cordillera Solar I S.A., Specialized Purpose Society (SPE). It is located on the edge of Route 150 leading to Paso de Agua Negra, 5 km from Las Flores in Iglesia.
The project has a total of 287,080 installed panels to create a type of renewable energy that will support the development of sustainable agricultural and industrial businesses by reducing the allocated budget for energy, reducing carbon dioxide emissions into the air and ensuring greater energy independence. This means that as soon as this project takes place, not only home users will benefit, but also production and industry will be supported.
Cordillera Solar I S.A. was rewarded in November 2016 with the offer of renewable energy from the "Renovace kolo 1.5" program, and in 2017 signed a contract for energy supply with the electric wholesale market company (Cammesa). The selected area of the Church has been selected for its large solar resources, and is one of the best in the country and the world.
The project involves the construction of 132 kV 132 kV high-speed power lines, 16 km from the park, to the connection at Sadi in Bauchacete ET.
Governor Uñac said that "there is a climate between the public and the private sector with a deep commitment to continue thinking that the only social link is employment and we are creating new market boundaries."
Mayor Marcelo Marinero spoke about the contribution to "productive and economic development," while Fernando Mateo, director of the Jinko project, stressed that "this is the largest photovoltaic project to be put into operation in the coming weeks at the national level."
Albardón also has a Las Lomitas photovoltaic park, which was inaugurated late in October. It has a generation capacity of 2.5 MW and requires 2.5 million pesos to invest. Business will mean clean energy for more than a thousand households and is part of the National Renewable Energy Plan, which has more than 200 such initiatives in the country. The official intent is that renewable energy be competitive with others.
Argentina and the United States signed yesterday six letters of intent to finance energy jobs and road infrastructure, in which the US government's financial institutions – will contribute $ 800 million of the total $ 3,000 million investment. Among them is Solar Park Ullum I, II and III, located on Solar Solar San Juan.
