Argentine Mendoza to present early-stage wind project - report
Argentina's Mendoza province has called a public meeting next month to present the El Sosneado wind project, still under study, which could generate up to 40 MW, local daily Diario San Rafael reports.
The project, proposed by regional utility Empresa Mendocina de Energia SA (Emesa), is predicted to generate between 20 MW and 40 MW, according to preliminary estimates. The company is currently studying the wind direction, speed and frequency in the El Sosneado area, in southern Mendoza, which is expected to take nearly two years.
The regional government has invited all interested parties, affected by the project, to attend the meeting on July 22.
El Sosneado could be the first wind farm in Mendoza. The province is also planning a pilot 1-MW photovoltaic plant, co-financed by Emesa and a national fund.
