First Solar Set to Build PV Solar Power Plant in Latin America

First Solar, Inc. announced it has received board approval from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the U.S. Government's development finance institution, and IFC for financing to support construction of the 141MW(ac) Luz del Norte solar power plant in Chile's Atacama Desert. The loans, which are expected to close later this summer, clear the way for First Solar to proceed with construction planning at the site, which is near the city of Copiapo. Terms of the deals were not disclosed. The OPIC board approved a loan of up to $230 million; the IFC board approved a $60 million loan. The Luz del Norte project is the first of several projects First Solar has in its regional development pipeline, and will be the company's initial project to start construction in Chile. Energy from Luz del Norte will be supplied into the Chilean Central Interconnected System.

Opic Approves $230 Million Chile Solar Project Loan

The Overseas Private Investment Corporation approved a loan of up to $230 million for First Solar's 141MW Luz del Norte photovoltaic (PV) solar plant in Chile's Atacama region (III). Following the Opic loan approval, and that of a $60 million loan from the World Bank's International Finance Corporation (IFC), it would proceed with construction planning at the site. The project will supply Chile's central SIC grid, and is among the biggest in Chile's solar pipeline.
