SunEdison to invest over $700M to develop 350 MW of solar in Chile SunEdison (SUNE) announced that the National Energy Commission in Chile has awarded SunEdison a contract to supply 570 gigawatt hours of clean energy a year. SunEdison noted that the National Energy Commission in Chile recently changed the bidding process used to award electricity supply contracts for the regulated market to create a more level playing field across different kinds of energy. With these changes, SunEdison was able to bid on and win supply contracts for 570 gigawatt hours of solar energy. SunEdison was awarded the provision of 190 gigawatt hours per year during the daytime block which begins in 2016 and a further provision of 380 gigawatt hours per during the daytime block which will become operational in 2017. To meet the demand, SunEdison will be investing more than $700M to develop 350 megawatts of utility scale solar photovoltaic power plants throughout the country. The plants will be added to the call right list of TerraForm Power (TERP), a global owner and operator of renewable energy power plants.
