In Chile, the Commission for the Environmental Evaluation approved the expansion of the Chalinga Solar Photovoltaic Park in the Coquimbo Region. The project will grow by 15%, from 2.98 to 3.45 MW, or 1,092 additional panels (8,736 were already installed). The project invests USD 1.5 million for an expected 30-year lifetime of the park. A lithium-ion batteries storage system will be also installed. It will allow shifting the energy injection schedules, providing more flexibility to the national electric system.
