Colombia advances 700MW Sebastosol PV project

Colombia’s mines and energy ministry issued a draft resolution that paves the way for the construction of a 700MW solar complex in the country’s north. Slated for the municipality of Cimitarra, in Santander department, the Sebastosol complex is one of Latin America’s largest solar PV energy initiatives. It forms part of a proposed $6 billion energy hub bordering Santander and Antioquia departments that would also include Latin America’s first privately owned oil refinery, a 135MW combined cycle thermoelectric plant and a hydrogen production unit. Sebastosol is currently in the permitting phase, having already completed feasibility studies.
