About the center
The challenge of this center is to turn Chile into a solar country. The project is based on the fact that Northern Chile –“Norte Grande” – offers great potential for producing electric power, heat and light based on the use of solar energy. Given the area’s high levels of radiation and exceptional ratios of clear-skies, photovoltaic and thermal solutions appear promising. These qualities make this area an outstanding region to study, develop and practice new solar technologies.
