Solar Energy in Bolivia

Bolivia Solar Energy Investments

The world’s largest vertically integrated photovoltaic manufacturer, has supplied over 5 megawatts of solar panels for Bolivia’s first solar power plant. The plant is expected to deliver clean energy to over 49,000 people. Bolivia Solar Energy Investments continue to rise in order to provide a cleaner source of Energy.
Bolivia Solar Power Plants are expected to increase in number.

As Bolivia’s first and largest solar power plant, the 5 MW system is expected to deliver clean energy to more than 49,000 people. It occupies 15 hectares (Ha) of land near the remote city of Cobija in the state of Pando, which has relied on diesel power generation because it is not connected to Bolivia’s national utility grid. EGSA (Empresa Electrica de Guaracachi S.A), a subsidiary of ENDE (Empresa Nacional de Electricidad), carried out preliminary studies and basic engineering for the project.

The new solar power system incorporates both battery storage and diesel generation to ensure continuous access to electricity. It is expected to generate 7,500 megawatt-hours (MWh) of clean power each year, meeting approximately 50% of regional demand. The power plant will offset more than 1.9 million liters of diesel fuel, which will result in significant energy cost savings for the Bolivian government.
