Enel Green Power Panama, the renewable energy subsidiary of Enel SpA, began construction of the Jagüito solar photovoltaic (PV) plant, a 13.12-MW capacity project located in Jaguïto, in the district of El Roble and central province of Coclé in Panama.
The project is part of the 2020-2021 investment plan in PV generation that Enel Green Power Panama is carrying out, with a total investment of about $50 million. The project is expected to produce up to 21.41 GWh of electricity per year which will be delivered to C&I customers.
Estimated completion is in the first semester of 2021.
“The construction of a new solar plant in Panama is one more example of our commitment to developing renewable energy sources throughout Central America,” commented Bruno Riga, Manager of Enel Green Power Central America. “The energy supply agreements related to this plant demonstrate the growing interest of the private sector in incorporating renewable energy into its operations. The construction of this new photovoltaic energy project will add to the growth of Panama’s energy matrix, while contributing to the activation of the local economy, during the financial crisis caused by the pandemic.”
