Panama now has its first utility-scale PV plant

An EPC joint venture said it has completed a 2.4MW solar plant in Panama for developer Enel Green Power – the first utility-scale PV installation in the country.

Located 15km from the city of Chitre, in the Herrera Province, the Sarigua solar plant can meet the demand of around 2,600 local homes after being connected to the La Empresa de Generacion Electricita (EGESA) grid network.

A joint venture of the renewables arm of the Libra Group conglomerate, Greenwood Energy and Biosar – a subsidiary of Aktor, a Greek construction company – provided EPC services to Enel Green Power Panama.
