Argentina stakes claim to Latin American PV crown with 300MW launch
Argentina has staked a claim to Latin American solar records after wrapping up the extension of a complex that could reach gigawatt-scale proportions within 10 years. President Eduardo Macri was amongst those hailing this week the completion of the second and third 100MW phases of Cauchari in the Jujuy province, bringing the overall complex to 300MW. The construction milestone means one-million-plus PV panels have now been installed at the site in Argentina’s semi-arid northwest, at more than 4,000 metres above sea level. The complex, featuring so far Cauchari I, II and III, is being delivered by a partnership between Jujuy utility Jemse and Chinese players Shanghai Electric and Power China. Addressing the Argentinian and Chinese officials onsite via videoconference, president Macri congratulated Jujuy governor Gerardo Morales for his work liaising with the Chinese partners. “All those trips to China … it was worth it because you fostered trust in Chinese investors so that they would support this PV park, Latin America’s largest,” the president said this week.   “This is only the beginning as extensions will be coming,” Macri went on to say. “Jujuy’s solar irradiation potential is almost infinite, a gift from God we will be turning into jobs for Jujuy.” The project's sponsors estimate 1,200 jobs were created to build what now stands of Cauchari, with 60% of the employees sourced from local communities. Jujuy's 3GW-in-a-decade solar ambitions At earlier joint press conferences months ago, president Macri and governor Morales had already anticipated additions to Cauchari beyond the first 300MW. In mid-March, Morales had explained expansions should see 500MW attained by the end of 2020, coupled with a 96MW add-on that is being overseen by Jujuy power distributor Ejesa. At this week’s Cauchari II and III opening ceremony, Jujuy’s governor predicted however a far more ambitious growth roadmap, which could see the province deliver 3GW of PV output in a decade.   “The idea is to continue now with Cauchari IV and V,” Morales explained this week. “We’re finalising the PPA with the Energy Ministry, where we will soon agree on a tariff.” A promotional video from Jujuy authorities said the Cauchari complex is now expected to generate 800GWh in clean energy output, with tariffs of US$60/MWh applying to the initial 300MW. The Cauchari installations built to date were backed by the first round of auction programme RenovAr in 2016 and an oversubscribed US$210 million green bond. At 85% of overall financing, the bulk of the funding was provided however by the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM), which awarded loans at interest rates of 3%. As noted by governor Morales this week, Cauchari has not required funding from Argentina’s budget so far and is expected to be generating revenues of US$900 million in 15 years’ time. Argentina’s claim to the Latin American PV crown comes as similarly large solar ventures make headway elsewhere, including in Brazil (608MW), Chile (382MW) and Mexico (296MWdc)

Argentina allocates 96.7 MW of PV in ‘mini’ auction
Argentina’s Secretariat of Energy has awarded 38 renewable energy projects to developers, for a total capacity of 259.08 MW through Round 3 of the RenovAr Program for large-scale renewables. Of these projects, 13 were awarded to PV developers, with a combined capacity of 96.75 MW and an average price of $57.58/MWh. The minimum price for solar was $54.22/MWh – very different values ​​than those being awarded in other recent auctions held by countries such as Brazil or Portugal. The rest of the projects corresponded to 10 wind projects, two biomass projects, six biogas projects, one landfill biogas project and six small hydroelectric utilization projects. Overall, these new installations will be built across 12 Argentinean provinces: Buenos Aires, Catamarca, Chaco, Córdoba, Formosa, La Pampa, Mendoza, Salta, San Juan, San Luis, Santa Cruz and Santa Fe. According to the secretariat, the projects will result in investments of more than $368 million. They are expected to generate more than 1,000 new jobs, spanning construction and operation and maintenance roles. Round 3 will use capacity available in the medium-voltage networks of distributors, and could give rise to the participation of nontraditional actors in the energy sector, which would drive up the number of companies that generate electricity from renewables. Selected projects must be be connected in medium- and low-voltage networks of 13.2 kV, 33 kV and 66 kV. The size limit is 10 MW, with a minimum output of 500 kW. Regarding the contractual terms, selected bidders were awarded 20-year PPAs with the Electricity Wholesale Market Administrator (CAMMESA). They also agreed to adhere to the FODER, a structure that guarantees payment to plants. Since 2016, the government has awarded 244 projects, adding more than 6.3 GW of capacity through rounds 1, 1.5, 2 and 3 of the RenovAr program. Under the previous three rounds, 1.7 GW of solar capacity was allocated. In the last auction, the lowest price for solar was $0.0404/kWh, while the highest and average prices came to $0.0523 and $0.0435, respectively.
