    “Solar power is now the cheapest source of electricity in Chile, according to Deutsche Bank...[In the October energy auction,] renewable projects offered the lowest prices and won contracts to supply 1,200 gigawatt-hours of power…That may lead to more than 1 gigawatt of new solar capacity installed in Chile this year…[and] help the country reach a target set in 2014 by Chile’s government of having 45 percent of its installed electric capacity powered by renewable sources…Three solar farms offered to sell power for $65 to $68 a megawatt-hour in the auction…Two wind farms bid $79 a megawatt-hour, and a solar-thermal plant with storage offered power at $97. Coal power was offered for $85…Thirty-one companies participated in the Oct. 23 event and the average price for winning bids was $79.30 a megawatt-hour, 40 percent less than a comparable auction in 2013. The power plants must go into operation by 2017. Renewable-energy projects won every contract…” click here for more
