February 13 (Renewables Now) - Spanish renewable energy company Continua Energias Positivas received on Wednesday the green light from the Peruvian government to develop two solar plants with a combined capacity of 160 MW.
The Ministry of Energy and Mines has approved the concessions for the 60-MW CSF Continua Pichu Pichu and the 100-MW CSF Continua Chachani photovoltaic (PV) projects. Together, the two will require almost USD 200 million (EUR 184.24m) in investments.
In addition to Pichu Pichu and Chachani, Continua Energias also has the 300-MW CSF Continua Misti PV plant located in the same province and department of Arequipa.
Chinese PV maker Trina Solar Co Ltd is the supplier of solar modules and trackers for all three plants.
