The effort included an investment of over USD 70 million (EUR 62m), claimed the Chilean power ministry, whose agents went to the launch.

The solar farm spreads over a 140-hectare (345.9 acres) area in La Higuera, a neighborhood in the Chilean region of Coquimbo. It is geared up with 214,704 PV modules installed on solar trackers, which will certainly make it possible for the plant to infuse some 220 GWh each year right into the SEN grid system, the ministry claimed.

CCE Group locates Chile to be its vital market, and also is open to buying three various other PV projects in the country, according to the ministry's press release.
