Atacama Desert, Chile

 

1.2 MWp Atacama Desert Solar Project powered by Canadian Solar CS6P-P.

German project developer, Juwi, and Chilean engineering company, Kaltemp, have combined forces to build the largest solar power plant in Chile, which will commence commercial operation by mid 2012. More than 5,000 Canadian Solar CS6P-P polycrystalline modules have been installed on a site less than two hectares in size covering a capacity of 1,200 kW for the nearby satsuma and avocado plantations.
