After completing the required technical and regulatory tests, Enel Green Power declared the start of commercial operation of its La Loma solar park, located in the municipality of El Paso, in Cesar.

This solar park, inaugurated in February, has a capacity of 150 megawatts and becomes the largest solar project that has entered into commercial operation in Colombia.

It has 400,000 solar panels distributed over 387 hectares and generates about 420 gigawatt hours per year, energy capable of supplying the needs of around 600,000 people, that is, the population of a city like Bucaramanga.

During the development period of the construction works of the La Loma solar park, Enel Green Power generated more than 1,720 jobs, of which 77 percent were from the region.

Enel Green Power also declared commercial operation on Foundation solar park, located in the municipality of Pivijay in Magdalena, whose construction had an investment of close to 109 million dollars.

The solar park has more than 244,800 solar panels and a capacity of 90 megawatts, which will deliver to Colombia around 267 gigawatt hours per year. Its official inauguration will be in the coming weeks.

Fundación is one of the 11 solar projects awarded in the third renewable energy auction carried out by the Ministry of Mines and Energy in 2021, and will meet the energy needs of nearly 380,000 people.
