Latin America Power (LAP) has become an important player in the energy sector of Chile and Perú in the last decade, providing renewable energy to the generation mix of both countries.
Going from 2011 and up until now, we have been characterized by our development of projects of diverse sources of energy, such as hydroelectricity, wind, and solar power, all the while maintaining a close relationship with the local communities and protecting the environment. We count on the support of its partners in Brazil, BTG Pactual, Patria Investments, and GMR Energía, who created the company ERSA/CPFL Renovaveis in 2006.
During Latin America Power`s history, we have witnessed the development and strengthening of diverse flagship projects and the communities surrounding them. Thus, our first investment in Chile was the construction of the run-of-river hydroelectric power plant Carilafquen Malalcahuello in Melipeuco, Araucanía region, and we are further responsible for developing one of the largest wind power plants in operation in Chile, San Juan de Chañaral de Aceituno farm, in the Atacama region. Moreover, we are operating six hydroelectric power plants in isolated locations of Peru, which were materialized through State contracts. We have also developed important work with peasant communities surrounding each project through investment funds to improve the productive activities and the communal infrastructures.
Currently, we have got 10 projects in operation, both in Chile and in Peru, which provide over 340 MW of clean energy to the generation mix of both countries, exemplifying correct functioning at all levels.
