Diana Hristova — Guatemala prepares to open a photovoltaic (PV) power plant of 50 MW in Chiquimulilla, Santa Rosa department, on Tuesday.

The project is developed by local firm Horus Energy, part of the energy division of Grupo Onyx, and envisages a second phase until completing 90 MW of installed capacity.

The Horus plant is to sell energy under a long-term contract with local power distributors as of May.

Last year a group of investors including Greenergyze, Grupo Ecos and Gransolar opened a 5-MW PV system, the first utility-scale solar power plant in the country. The facility has a long-term agreement with power distributor Energuate.
