The Ministry of Energy reported that they began to generate electricity three new projects from renewable sources that add a total of 100 Mw to the national interconnected system.
These are the Ullum I and II solar parks, located in San Juan, and the Villalonga I wind farm, south of Bahía Blanca, said the Secretariat.
The first two projects have an installed capacity of 25 Mw each and generate electricity for more than 30,000 homes.
Each of these projects, awarded during Round 1.5 of the RenovAr Program, has 79,000 solar panels and required an investment of US$ 32.5 million, respectively.
For its part, the Villalonga I wind farm, which belongs to Genneia S.A., has an installed capacity of 50 MW and generates electricity for more than 50,000 homes.
The new plant has 15 wind turbines of 3.45 MW of unitary power and required an investment of US$ 80 million.
This park was awarded through Round 1 of the RenovAr Program and is the first in Argentina to have all of its towers manufactured in the country, by the company Gri Calviño de Florencio Varela.
Currently, the Secretariat highlighted, there are 23 renewable energy projects that have already entered into commercial operation since 2016 for 593 MW of installed power in 10 provinces: Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Chubut, Cordoba, La Rioja, Rio Negro, San Juan, San Luis, Misiones and Catamarca.
The projects are distributed by technology as follows: 8 wind farms; 7 solar farms, a small hydroelectric use; 4 biogas; and 3 biomass, which in total generate electricity for more than 600,000 families.
There are also 92 other renewable energy projects under construction for 3,667 Mw of installed power, the information concluded.
