Ingeteam grows in South America with the supply of its inverters to two new solar photovoltaic plants in Ecuador.
Installed by SUNCO Sistemi Fotovoltaici on the Ecuadorian mountain range of the Andes, the solar fields are at 3,000 m above sea level: a new source of energy for the entire country, they are already active and have been connected to the national electricity network since August.
This project confirms Ingeteam’s international growth strategy for clean energy expansion at a global level, with a particular focus on countries characterised by a lower level of industrialisation but ready for a new economical development.
Since April 14th 2011, the national authority for electric energy in Ecuador has adopted a Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) programme that also involves the Galápagos Islands. This programme aims to establish agreed tariffs for buying energy that is produced by renewable sources such as photovoltaic, wind, water and biomass systems.
This action confirms the Government engagement in promoting the development of the new energy resources and the country’s growth, while respecting the environmental ecosystem that characterises it.
