Pacific Hydro plans to expand Chilean solar project to 293 MWp

Pacific Hydro is seeking an environmental permit to increase the capacity of its solar photovoltaic (PV) project in Atacama, Chile, from 120 MWp to 293 MWp. The company has made modifications to the design of its Central Desierto de Atacama project and plans to occupy more surface to add a total of 518,904 solar modules. Pacific Hydro would invest $300 million in the project. The expanded project would now take up 394 hectares of surface area in the commune of Tierra Amarilla in the Atacama region.
