According to PennEnergy, Gov. Ricardo Rossello said Friday that the plant will produce more than 100,000 megawatts of energy an hour in its first year. He said that would reduce carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to the consumption of 162,000 barrels of oil.
The $160 million Oriana Solar Plant features 183,000 photovoltaic panels. It is located in the town of Isabela. It was built by Puerto Rico-based Oriana Energy LLC, a subsidiary of Sonnedix in partnership with Yarotek, and it will be maintained by METKA-EGN.
