Chile Kaltemp wants to install 3 MW solar plants - report
Sep 12, 2013 - Chilean firm Kaltemp considers developing additional 10 photovoltaic projects of 3 MW each by 2018 after completing its first plant in early 2014, CEO Gustavo Boetsch told daily Diario Financiero.
Kaltemp focuses on small plants to minimise the impact on the environment and local distribution networks.
Tambo Real, a 1.2 MW plant built by Kaltemp in Coquimbo region, is now being expanded to 3.2 MW. It became the first solar plant connected to Chile's main network SIC.
Like Tambo Real, the new projects are also located in Chile's Norte Chico zone, where the electricity prices are attractive, Boetsch said.
