July 27 (Renewables Now) - A total of 187.66 MW of new renewable energy capacity was connected to Argentina’s electricity system over the second quarter of 2021, the Argentine government said.

The capacity is generated by three wind farms, two bioenergy power plants and a 0.77-MW addition to a small-scale solar farm, which now reached 3 MW.

The wind farms that were brought into commercial operation are the 102.4-MW Loma Blanca VI, the 52.39-MW Los Teros and the 24-MW Kosten. Besides them, the 5.10-MW San Martin Norte III D biogas and the 3-MW MM Bioenergia biomass-fired plant now enjoy the online status.

The rate of connections follows a healthy first quarter during which ten plants incorporated 382.18 MW of fresh renewable energy into the system.

Argentina started the third trimester of 2021 with 4,754 MW of installed renewables across 177 operational plants, the government said.
