40 MW Solar park inaugurated in Panama

The IKAKOS solar park, a project led by the InterEnergy Group, was inaugurated a few days ago in the presence of Panama’s President, Juan Carlos Varela Rodríguez, and former President of the United States, Bill Clinton.

This project is “expanding the energy matrix”, said President Varela, and meeting the electricity demand of “approximately 30 000 families”.

The IKAKOS solar park, which required an investment of over USD48 million, will provide 84.6 GWh of electricity to Panama’s central grid.

The inauguration of the project was also used to launch the SER Initiative, whereby Inter Energy Group offers to administer client’s energy needs, provided through a combination of solar, wind, and hydroelectric energy.

“Undoubtedly, IKAKOS is important for the country’s energy development and its positive impact on the environment, due to the non-emission of polluting gases, making it a model project within the energy industry,” added President Varela.
