Aurora is a 129 MW project located in the Los Lagos region in the south of Chile - about 50km from Puerto Montt. Aurora received its environmental approval in September 2015 and in October that year, was awarded a 20 year contract by the National Energy Commission (NCE) under a competitive bidding process to supply regulated customers in Chile's SIC electricity system.
In August 2017, the Aurora wind farm reached financial close.
The wind plant will supply more than 195,000 households per year with electricity. In addition, its operation will prevent the emission of 172 thousand tons of CO2 annually, which is equal to approximately 140 thousand cars withdrawn from use.
Aurora wind farm forms part of Mainstream's Aela Energía platform, a joint venture with private equity firm Actis with a total platform portfolio of 332 MW.
