Quotes

For its part, the Blueberry Committee has pointed out that the situation in the sector "has not affected all producers, and although some may be severely affected, overall the situation is under control; the drop in the production and export of blueberries will consequently not be significant."
Bachelet said, "This year alone, we are incorporating more than 1,000 MW of new energy to our system through different non-conventional renewable energies. This is an important step towards our 2025 target of having 20% of our energy coming from non-conventional renewable energies."
"Northern Chile is one of the places with the highest solar radiation in the world, and therefore is the place to develop alternative renewable energy projects such as First Solar's,” said Pacheco."
Copiapó Mayor Maglio Ciardini said: "Luz del Norte will help provide clean energy to the central grid."
