Pacific Hydro Chile
Chile has been one of Latin America’s fastest-growing economies over the past decade.
The country’s projected economic growth implies increased demand for electricity which is forecast to rise by around 5% a year through to 2020, creating opportunities for renewable generation.
Operating in Chile since 2002, Pacific Hydro has been playing an important role in helping to meet the country’s increasing demand for electricity, without increasing emissions, and contributing to its economic growth and to the sustainable development of the local communities.
Today, Pacific Hydro is one of Chile’s leading renewable energy companies, developing, delivering and operating run-of-river hydro power plants in the Cachapoal and Tinguiririca Valleys, in the country’s Region of O’Higgins.
In addition to hydro power plants, Pacific Hydro has environmental approval to build its first wind farm in Chile, the Punta Sierra wind farm that will be located in Ovalle, Region of Coquimbo.
