Solar Power Plant to Be Built in Northern Argentina, President Says

BUENOS AIRES – A solar power plant will be built in Jujuy, bringing renewable energy to this province in northern Argentina, President Mauricio Macri said.

“Energy is a vital issue, a central issue. A country cannot grow without energy,” Macri said during a ceremony Saturday to present the project in Purmamarca, a city located about 1,557 kilometers (967 miles) north of Buenos Aires.

A solar power plant is also planned in the western province of Mendoza, Macri said.

Projects like these will allow Argentines to have their energy needs met, ending the outages that now occur “if there are peaks of heat or cold,” the president said.

“This happened because of the poor energy policy that we had in the past 10 years,” Macri said, referring to the administrations of former Presidents Nestor Kirchner and his wife, Cristina Fernandez.

“Bad energy policy led us to believe that energy is something that’s there and is to be wasted. Energy is essential, but it’s also the maximum generator of the problem the world is experiencing with climate change,” the president said.
