Costa Rica inaugurates its largest solar park

The country’s largest solar energy installation was inaugurated in Costa Rica a few days ago.

With over 19,000 solar panels on a surface of 11,2 hectares, the 5MW cooperative solar park will deliver electricity to 5,000 families in the Northern region of the country. 

Coopelesca, the first Carbon Neutral Cooperative in Latin America leads the project, whilst the National Consortium of Electrification Companies supervised the installation of the plant.

Costa Rica’s President Carlos Alvarado, who was present at the inauguration, lauded the work that had gone into the project, and emphasised the importance of photovoltaic energy to meet the country’s goal of producing energy from 100% renewable sources by 2050.
