Enel Wins Tender for Renewable Energy Projects in Chile

Enel Generación Chile and Enel Green Power won 54% of the 2.2 TWh per year offered in the tender. The energy awarded to Enel will be provided by a mix of new renewable projects comprised of 116 MWp of solar, 93 MW of wind and 33 MW of geothermal for a total capacity of 242 MW.

“We are extremely pleased about this new important award for the supply of electricity to Chilean customers,” said Enel CEO and General Manager, Francesco Starace.

The 242 MW of new renewable capacity are based on solar and geothermal plants located in the Antofagasta region, in Northern Chile, as well as on a wind farm located in the Araucanía region, in Southern Chile. The facilities are expected to enter into service by 2024, generating around 1.180 TWh per year and avoiding the annual emission of around 500,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

The tender was launched following Chile’s General Power Service Law from 2006 shaping the regulatory framework for public tenders in order to provide distribution system operators with long-term power supply contracts with generators that would enable them to meet the power consumption needs of regulated market customers in their concession areas.
