Thanks to clean energy, power price to be halved at least in 10 years in Chile

(Nat Sound: Promotion Snippet)

This official promotion snippet tells about the ambition of the Chilean government to lower power price by about 50% in the upcoming decade.

The goal is to be realized through the adoption of wind power combined with solar energy, in addition to the conventional way of power generation.

“It is a difficult question to measure, because it will effectively lower the cost of lighting at all Chilean homes. It is difficult to calculate the ecological cost that ensues, so we must be precise in handling these projects.”

According to Chile’s Ministry of Energy, with new players incorporated into the power market during the third week of August, electricity price is expected to reach 47.6 U.S. dollar every MWH, or megawatt per hour.

“Hopefully, they will be implemented in stages. These wind parks will be measured at every stage about how they affect biodiversity.”

Two-thirds of the new power projects depend on wind and solar technologies, which will further strengthen Chile’s status as the leading developer of clean energy in Latin America.
