Enel Green starts build on 61 MW wind power farm in Chile

Renewable energy company Enel Green Power announced it has started construction on a 61 megawatt wind power farm in Chile. The Talinay Poniente wind farm will have 32 wind turbines that will generate enough power to provide electricity for 60,000 households in Chile, according to a statement by the company.

Total investment for construction of the wind farm, which is located in the Coquimbo region, is estimated at $140 million. Talinay is expected to be operational by the first half of 2015. Upon completion, electricity from the new plant will supply Chile's Central Region Transmission Network’s regulated-market customers.

Enel Green Power owns and operates several renewable energy projects in Chile, including 180 MW of combined wind capacity from the Talinay Oriente and Valle de los Vientos wind farms. The company said it is also developing the 99 MW Taltal wind farm - Enel’s biggest wind energy project in Chile.
