June 20 (Renewables Now) - Spanish company EPR Solar and Israeli investors have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Nicaragua's Ministry of Energy and Mines (MEM) regarding the construction of a 100-MW solar project.

The photovoltaic (PV) facility will be built at a site between San Benito and Tipitapa in a phased manner, starting with 50 MW, the country's National Electricity Transmission Company (ENATREL) announced.

The plant will be connected to the San Benito Substation, currently undergoing expansion works, and will require the installation of approximately 170,000 panels.

When completed, the new PV plant will be the fifth of its kind in Nicaragua, adding to the 1.5-MW La Trinidad Solar Plant, 12-MW Solaris, 300-kW San Juan de Nicaragua and 2.5-MW Corn Island facilities.
