A stable regulatory framework and the reduced risk of this technology where determining factors for Solarpack to establish this new renewable energy project. To this must add that the Moquegua region, one of the areas with the most solar radiation on the planet, is ideal for the development of photovoltaic solar technology.
Moquegua FV is Solarpack’s third plant participation in Peru. The company also counts with participation in the Tacna Solar plant (located in the Tacna region), of 22 MWp and in operation since 2012 and in the Panamericana Solar plant (also in the Mariscal Nieto region), of 21 MWp and inaugurated in 2013.
