Total SA’s SunPower Corp. won a contract to sell solar power from a 164-megawatt farm to Chilean power distributor Colbun SA.
The San Jose, California-based company was awarded a 15-year power supply agreement for 500 gigawatt-hours per year, according to a statement Thursday. More than 13 developers submitted bids.
SunPower will build and operate the project.
Colbun owns 24 power plants across Chile and Peru, with a total 3,852 megawatts installed capacity.
