Spain-based PV power generator T-Solar and project developer Solarpack have been awarded a contract by the Peruvian government for the annual supply of 173 GWh of PV energy over a period of 20 years.
To supply the 173 GWh, T-Solar and Solarpack will be jointly developing four 20 MW photovoltaic plants. Two of the plants will be developed and run by T-Solar, and the other two will be run SolarPack in consortium with T-Solar.
The four PV plants will be in operation before June 30th, 2012. They will be located in the south of Peru, in the regions of Tacna, Arequipa and Moquegua, which have a high average annual irradiation of 2,300 kWh/m2, according to the companies. The electricity generated by the four plants will be bought by the national grid system in Peru at a guaranteed price over 20 years.
