Peru-Chile electricity system integration continues

Plans for power transmission integration between Peru and Chile are continuing, with two potential projects under consideration. One will cost $55m and be operational by 2017. The other, a more ambitious project, will cost $725 million and is set to begin in 2020.

The Committee on Economic Cooperation for the National Interconnected System (COES) said that only a political agreement between the countries is needed, according to Gestión.

The cheapest plan includes a 220 kV, 50 km line, able to transport about 460 MW. The other includes two 500 kV lines and one 220 kV line which would transport up to 1000 MW.
