Solar Energy Company Likana Solar Thermal Granted Approval by Environmental Agency

Likana Solar Granted 5.1-GWH Approval

SolarReserve yesterday said its 390-MW Likana concentrating sun oriented power plant got ecological endorsement from the Chilean government.

The venture in the Antofagasta district of Chile will have 5.1-GWh of storage stockpiling.

“The Chilean transmission system will have difficulty accommodating large amounts of intermittent power,” Tom Georgis, SolarReserve’s senior VP of improvement, said in an announcement. “The distribution companies and mining sector require a firm, secure, and stable supply of electricity 24 hours a day. The Likana project will help lower electricity costs for Chilean families and businesses, while safeguarding grid stability.”

SolarReserve said it will be offering storage and related limit from its Chilean activities into the up and coming sale for vitality supply issued every year by Chile’s energy distribution organizations.

In March, SolarReserve said the Chilean government endorsed its Tamarugal concentrating sun based power extend in the Tarapacá locale of Chile. The venture will have three 150-MW sun oriented warm towers, each with 13 hours of full load vitality stockpiling, and 5.8 GWh of aggregate storage stockpiling limit.
