Cabo Negro Wind Farm

This Wind Farm will generate important benefits for about 130 thousand inhabitants and will provide sustainability to the Magallanes electrical system, reducing polluting emissions and stabilizing tariffs for consumers.

Cabo Negro Wind Farm

The Cabo Negro Wind Farm project, located in the XII Region of Magallanes, considers an investment of MMUS$ 22 to MMUS$ 24, will generate about 10 MW of electricity, equivalent to the annual consumption of six thousand homes of Magallanes, which puts this Region at the lead by increasing from 2% to 18% the presence of Non-Conventional Renewable Energies (ERNC) in the region’s electrical system.

This Wind Farm will generate important benefits for about 130 thousand inhabitants and will provide sustainability to the Magallanes electrical system, reducing polluting emissions and stabilizing tariffs for consumers.

The Regional Government had a relevant in supporting ENAP to generate clean energy with the wind, a resource so typical of this area. The project, which will have resources provided by the Regional Council (CORE) of Magallanes, considers the installation of three new wind turbines and will be located on the company's lands in the Cabo Negro-Laredo sector. Currently, the technical studies continue and the work plan to build the wind farm will begin by the end of this year.  

The project considers injecting the production of the Wind Farm to the Punta Arenas system, through the connection to a line owned by Pecket Energy, with which the region’s distribution company will provide electricity for both rural and urban users.
