Panama regulator grants permits for 30 MW solar power
Jun 3, 2014 - Panama's utility regulator Asep gave provisional licences last week for the development of three solar photovoltaic projects of 10 MW each in Panama and Chiriqui provinces.
The plants, named San Enrique and Ikako I and III, were proposed by IPower Corp, Tecnisol II and Tecnisol IV, respectively.
The licences, valid for 12 months, allow the firms to seek environmental and other permits. The investors could request definitive concession after presenting complete information about the projects, including the environmental permits and plans for grid connection.
Earlier in May, Asep granted definitive concession to Panasolar Generation for the construction and operation of a 9.9-MW photovoltaic plant in Cocle province.
