Overview

Rio Escondido solar park (145 MW) located in the Atacama Region, is Mainstream's first solar project in LATAM.  It forms part of the Cóndor portfolio within Mainstream's wholly owned Andes Renovables 1.3 GW platform. When operational, the Cóndor portfolio will supply 680,000 Chilean homes.

The Río Escondido Solar Park will be located in an area of approximately 422 hectares, 58 kilometres from the city of Copiapó. It will have 550,368 photovoltaic panels and will have a capacity of 145 MW of power. 

The Andes Renovables platform was formed following Mainstream's win in the 2016 technology-neutral electricity auction. Mainstream was the biggest winner in Chile’s taking 28% of the total allocated capacity and awarded a 20-year index-linked, US dollar denominated contract, to supply 3,366 gigawatt hours of firm power starting in 2021.
