Operation begins at Peru’s largest PV plant

April 5th, 2018, Published in Articles: Energize

Enel, through its Peruvian renewable energy subsidiary Enel Green Power Peru (“EGPP”), started operations at the 180 MW Rubi solar PV plant, which is Peru’s largest solar plant and Enel’s first solar facility in the country, will be able to generate approximately 440 GWh per year. The project is financed in part through the company’s own resources and in part by the European Investment Bank. The facility is supported by a 20-year power purchase agreement signed with Peru’s Ministry of Energy and Mines. The company was awarded the PPA supporting the project in 2016 following the public renewable energy tender launched by the country’s energy regulator. Upon completion of the other two projects awarded in the tender alongside Rubi, which are the 132 MW Wayra I wind farm and the 20 MW Ayanunga hydro facility, EGPP will become Peru’s main renewable energy player, as well as the only company in the country operating plants based on three different renewable energy technologies.
