Mainstream strikes deal for 1GW hybrid renewable platform in Chile

July 20, 2021

Mainstream Renewable Power has unveiled a 1GW hybrid renewable energy platform in Chile.

The Nazca Renovables platform consists of six projects, comprising three wind and three solar photovoltaic and is divided into three portfolios.

Humboldt, the first of these, will provide 255MW of clean energy via the Tata Inti solar farm and the Entre Rios wind farm, with construction expected to begin in mid-2022.

Mainstream’s new Nazca Renovables platform builds on the 1.35GW Andes Renovables platform, which recently saw its first portfolio, Condor, begin supplying electricity to the grid.

The Humboldt portfolio will supply a recently signed long-term bilateral private power purchase agreement (PPA) with a strategic partner.

This is the second such deal within a month for Mainstream in Chile, following the signing of a PPA to supply power from the Copihue phase of the Andes Renovables platform.
