Latin America Moves Forward On First CSP/PV Solar Plant

Latin America Moves Forward On First CSP/PV Solar Plant

Construction of the Cerro Dominador project got underway last year with the first 62 MW of the solar PV portion of the project, which was brought up to its full 100 MW in February of this year. The CSP portion will add another 110 MW which will serve to avoid emissions worth 640,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, and when combined with the solar PV aspect of the project, avoiding emissions worth 870,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. Upon completion, Cerro Dominador — which means “dominating hill” — will go down as Latin America’s first combined CSP and solar PV project.
