First Solar announced it has received board approval from the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the U.S. Government’s development finance institution, and IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, for financing to support construction of the 141MW(ac) Luz del Norte solar power plant in Chile’s Atacama Desert. The loans, which are expected to close later this summer, clear the way for First Solar to proceed with construction planning at the site, which is near the city of Copiapo.

Energy from Luz del Norte will be supplied into the Chilean Central Interconnected System, contributing significantly towards this goal
