With 30 PV kits, CCE- Clean Capital Energy supports sustainable energy generation in private households in the region around its own recently opened photovoltaic plant “La Huella” in Chile.
Vienna / Santiago de Chile. February 14, 2022 – In November 2021, the photovoltaic specialist CCE opened its 87-megawatt peak solar power plant “La Huella” in the municipality of La Higuera north of Santiago de Chile. It is the first of four planned photovoltaic projects in Chile. However, the Austrian company does not only want to make a significant contribution to the fight against climate change. It also takes its social responsibility seriously and equipped 30 families in the region, who were previously not connected to the electricity grid, with photovoltaic kits free of charge. With the off-grid installation of the panels, the families are now self-sufficient and continuously supplied with energy.
„Producing sustainable, clean energy is not only a forward-looking business for us,” explains René Hörwertner, Man-aging Director of CCE Chile and Business Development Latin America. “It is a personal concern of ours to invest in a technology that significantly promotes carbon neutrality in Chile, for ex-ample. From our point of view, all people should be able to enjoy “green” electricity, which is why we also support development at the private level where it is possible for us. So, we felt the need to make it accessible to people in the region as well.”
For this purpose, CCE has launched the “CCE Care” initiative, under whose umbrella social, environmental or socially relevant projects will be identified and implemented – not only in Chile, but in all countries where CCE is active and maintains PV plants.
