The 300 MW Cauchari solar project in Argentina has started supplying power to the national grid. The plant comprises three 100 MW phases and is operated by local state-owned power company Jujuy Energía y Minería Sociedad del Estado (JEMSE), which signed a 20 year power purchase agreement with CAMMESA (Argentine Wholesale Electricity Market Clearing Company). The project is expected to have an operational life of 35 years and to sell its power generation at a price of US$60/MWh (award in Round 1.0 of the RenovAr Programme).
