Chilean wind farm’s new capacity comes online

Chile has inaugurated the second and final phase of the Monte Redondo wind farm built by GDF Suez, now recognized as the world’s largest utility.
The capacity of the Monte Redondo wind facility, which is connected to the Central Interconnection System (SIC), has been increased to 48 MW (up from 38 MW), according to a report by Agence France Presse.
The completion of the project, which started in 2009 near the city of Ovalle, 400 km to the north of Santiago, will provide enough electricity for around 74 000 homes, says the Ministry of Energy.
According to an official statement, the power from this wind farm will help Chile cut green house emissions by around 68 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.
