CER: Chile reaches 173 MW-AC of installed solar PV #solar

Chile's Center for Renewable Energy (CER) reports that the nation has reached 173 MW-AC of installed solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity, as well as 170 MW-AC under construction, in its April 2014 report. Additionally, CER estimates that Chile's PV plants generated 32 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity during the month of March 2014, a dramatic increase from 1.8 GWh generated in the previous month. Confusion over capacity under construction CER's April 2014 numbers show a 23 MW-AC increase in operational PV but a 55 MW-AC decline in PV under construction, compared the agency's March 2014 report. No explanation is given for the difference. Additionally, GTM Research (Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.) has provided different and higher estimates, stating in early April 2014 that Chile had 380 MW of PV plants under construction. 2014-04-28 | Courtesy: CER | solarserver.com © Heindl S...
