“We believe that these new technologies will help cover some eventualities and may make up for a shortage of energy supply,” said Tamayo.
He said that the installation of said power plants will be throughout the country. However, DGE plans these projects to be mainly executed in the northern and southern areas of Peru.
The signing of the agreements was done with companies which were awarded the second bid for the renewable energy projects organized by DGE.
Such companies include Parque Eólico Tres Hermanas, Moquegua FV, Empresa de Generación Eléctrica Canchayllo, Peruana de Inversiones en Energías Renovables, Empresa de Generación Eléctrica Santa Ana and Andes Generating Corporation.
