Argentina adds new decentralized capacity to its energy mix

Argentina’s Ministry of Federal Planning recently put into operation six small power plants, with a combined capacity of almost 93 MW, representing a significant addition of distributed generation to the country’s energy mix.
 
The plants come under the Distributed Energy Programme of Enarsa (Energia Argentina SA).
 
Four of the power stations are located in the province of Buenos Aires: the 12.7 MW Colón; the 10 MW Salto; the 22.5 MW General Villegas; and 22.5 MW Las Armas.
 
The government of South America’s second largest nation is seeking to diversify its power generation portfolio to help satisfy the increasing demand for electricity, according to Agencia Diarios y Noticias.
