Argentina's San Luis government announced on Monday it plans to increase the capacity of its solar farm from the current 1 MW to 2.4 MW.
Once updated, the photovoltaic (PV) park will be able to cover 57% of the electrical consumption of the Terrazas del Portezuelo, a complex of public facilities where the province's Government House is based.
According to the local government, to reach 2.4 MW the PV farm will need to add 5,500 of PV modules to the existing 4,080.
The Minister of Environment, Field and Production, Cristian Moleker said the government will use local equipment in this expansion project.
Under the 27,191 law, Argentina requires large users of electricity marke to use renewable sources to cover 8% of total consumption by 2018.
