Sonnedix Taranto, located in the Valparaíso Region of Chile, at just 80 km from the capital Santiago de Chile, will be built by CAF Turnkey & Engineering as EPC contractor, with its completion expected by the beginning of 2022.

This ground-mounted solar PV plants will have a capacity of 10.5 MW and it’s expected to generate 21,648 MWh of clean electricity during its first year of operation, which is equivalent to avoiding the emission of almost 9,000 tons of CO2 per year.

“We’re excited to start the construction of new solar PV projects in Chile, where our fast growth and expansion is allowing us to play an active role in the country’s energy transition” said Axel Thiemann, CEO of Sonnedix. “This is testament to our strong commitment to the Chilean market and focus on acquiring and developing solar projects that will help us build a bright future and give back to the communities in which we operate”.

Sonnedix has 15 operating solar PV plants in Chile, where the company set foot back in 2015. With a total controlled capacity of over 400 MW in Chile, and more than 700 MW in the pipeline, Sonnedix continues actively looking for opportunities to expand its solar footprint in the market, and around the world.
