Chile keeps moving forward in foreign investment on renewable energies

In the context of our country’s commitment to create a more sustainable future based on innovation and the generation of new renewable energy sources, the international financial community brings us more good news. 

Through the Irish generator Mainstream Renewable Power, the Andes Renovables project to install one of the largest wind and solar platforms in Latin America has secured a new investment of US$ 280 million. 

The project, approximately US$ 1.800 million in total, includes seven wind and three solar photovoltaic generation assets.

This way, with the trust and support of foreign investment, Chile continues its path towards a more sustainable power matrix, contributing to our country and the world.
