The National Environmental Licensing Agency (ANLA) granted environmental viability to the solar project “Parque Solar Valledupar”.
This project is owned by Enel Green Power Colombia, and is located in Cesar, Valora Analitik reported.
This solar park will contribute 119MW to the National Interconnected System (SIN).
The environmental licensing evaluation process took into account the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the physical, biotic and social environments of the project’s area of influence.
It also evaluated the analysis of the environmental impacts that may be generated by the development of the project’s works and activities, as well as the management and monitoring measures established in the Environmental Management Plan (EMP).
The project consists of the installation and operation of approximately 312,930 photovoltaic modules to generate energy with an installed capacity of 119MW and an elevator substation.
ANLA will begin environmental control and monitoring of the project from the construction stage, where it will verify compliance with the obligations established in the license, the environmental management plans (PMA), and the environmental compliance reports (ICA).
With the environmental viability granted to the Valledupar Solar Park, there are now 11 projects totaling 2,388MW of generation.
