Colombia’s Celsia completes 10-MW PV plant

Colombian power company Celsia SA put into operation a 9.9-MW photovoltaic park in Colombia. The solar power plant, with an investment of $10.3 mn, was developed in partnership with investment fund Cubico Sustainable Investments with which the company plans to develop 650 MW of new solar projects next year. With 37,876 solar panels, the PV park’s output is equivalent to the consumption of 6,000 local families. Celsia expects it to be able to offset 194,775 tonnes of CO2 emissions during its 25 year life cycle. The solar farm will also supply Grupo Diana’s rice plant with 31% of its production while the remaining energy will be fed directly into the Colombian grid. With this new addition, Celsia reaches 54.43 MW of PV generation in Colombia.
