The city of Moquegua will be the new home of a solar power plant, called Panamericana Solar 20 TS, announced the Ministry of Energy and Mining.
The plant will have an installed capacity of 20 megawatts (Mw) and will be responsible for producing clean, renewable energy, which contributes to the energy supply, reports El Comercio.
Through a Ministerial Resolution, published Wednesday in El Peruano, the Ministry granted the concession for generating renewable energy to Panamericana Solar S.A.C.
