Enel to file for permit to close last coal-fired units in Chile by 2022

Power company Enel Chile SA and its electricity generation subsidiary Enel Generacion Chile SA have decided to close their last coal-fired plant in 2022 to exit coal earlier than previously agreed with the Chilean Government. Enel Generacion will file a request with Chile’s National Energy Commission (CNE) to authorise the closure of two units at the Bocamina plant. The 128-MW Bocamina I was to be taken offline by the end of 2023, but now Enel Chile want to take Bocamina I offline by December 31, 2020.
