Chile to Ease Electricity Shortages by Tapping Renewables

Chile will ease power shortages in the center of the country by building a 3,000-kilometer (1,865-mile) transmission line to link the grid with renewable plants in the north by 2017.

Energy Minister Maximo Pacheco said he will sign a decree Thursday approving interconnections that include the $1 billion transmission line.
