Puma Energy, PASH to set up 18.3 MWp of DG solar across Puerto Rico
May 26 (Renewables Now) – Oil utility Puma Energy, part of Trafigura in Singapore, and its UK-based partner developer PASH Global announced last week the launch of a project to roll out decentralized generation (DG) solar power systems with 18.3 MWp Stations in Puerto Rico.
The partners will cover the roof areas of 200 Puma stations with around 20,500 solar modules that will produce around 30,000 MWh of electricity annually. The project, which has a total investment of $ 25 million (EUR 20 million), is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022.
So far, two installations at Puma filling stations have been completed. Puma Energy announced that the 1,252 kW project at the Bayamon Terminal will be commissioned shortly.
PASH noted that it is considering ways to assist Puerto Rico in its plans to install 1 GW of renewable energy capacity and 500 MW of battery storage.
