Enel, through its Peruvian renewable energy subsidiary Enel Green Power Peru (“EGPP”), has started operations at the 180 MW Rubi solar PV plant, which is Peru’s largest solar plant and Enel’s first solar facility in the country. Enel invested around US$170-million in the construction of Rubi, as part of the investments outlined in the company’s current strategic plan. The project, which is located in the city of Moquegua in Peru’s Mariscal Nieto province, is financed in part through Enel Group’s own resources and in part by the European Investment Bank. The facility is supported by a 20-year power purchase agreement signed with Peru’s Ministry of Energy and Mines. Once fully operational, Rubi will be able to generate around 440 GWh per year, which will be delivered to Peru’s National Interconnected Electricity System (SEIN) through the Montalvo substation.
