In response to the growing demand for sustainable energy solutions, global providers like MPC Energy Solutions (MPCES) are developing and implementing renewable energy projects worldwide. One such project is the Parque Solar Los Girasoles in Colombia, which has recently been completed by MPCES. With a capacity of 12.3 megawatts, this solar power facility is expected to generate significant amounts of clean energy and contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions.
Solar Plant Development
MPC Energy Solutions (MPCES), a provider of sustainable energy solutions, has announced the successful completion of the Parque Solar Los Girasoles project in the Norte de Santander region of Colombia. With a capacity of 12.3 megawatts, the solar power plant is expected to produce approximately 23 GWh of solar energy each year.
This will prevent the release of 100,000 tons of CO2 emissions throughout its lifespan. The energy generated by the project will be sold to Spectrum, a leading Colombian energy trading firm and electricity supplier, through a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA), generating an estimated revenue of $1.3 million annually.
André Fraga, CEO of Spectrum, expressed pride in partnering with a global sustainable energy provider to power a solar PV plant in Colombia. Fraga noted that this project will be instrumental in helping Colombia achieve its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050. Additionally, Fraga stated that the project is a critical part of Spectrum’s own energy transition, as it aims to become the first 100% renewable energy supplier in Colombia.
MPC Energy Solutions (MPCES) invested $11 million in equity to develop and construct the project and intends to secure debt financing post-commissioning. Parque Solar Los Girasoles is MPCES’s third project to begin operations this year. Colombian company Socolco S.A.S. served as the engineering and construction (E&C) contractor, Trina Solar supplied the solar modules, and Huawei provided the inverters for the project.
