EDP has inaugurated its first renewable energy project in Chile.

The Punta de Talca Eolic wind farm is in the Ovalle District in the north of the country.
The park has 14 Eolic wind turbines with a power of 83 MWp, generating electricity for 95,000 homes per year, with a reduction of 140,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
The company entered the market in 2021 and has a portfolio of 1GW with Eolic, solar, and energy storage projects.
“This inauguration represents a fundamental step in our growth strategy for South America. Chile is a key market because of the country’s commitment to green energy and its potential for growth in renewable energies.
“Punta de Talca not only represents the beginning of a solid relationship with Chile, but also strengthens our position in the global market and our long-term commitment to sustainability and the economic development of the communities in which we are present,” said João Marques da Cruz, head of EDP South America.
