Solar energy is on the rise and represents – on an industrial scale – the most attractive renewable source due to lower costs and a relatively fast construction period. In Colombia, there are more than 294 clean energy projects that seek to supply the growing demand for electricity. According to the Ministry of Mines and Energy, 12 photovoltaic energy projects are underway in the Caribbean region, including the 'La Loma' solar farm, in the department of Cesar.
“ Our mission is to build a sustainable electrification future. We are proud to contribute to Colombia's renewable energy goals with this project. Thanks to our innovative cabling solutions, we will be able to supply the population's electricity requirements with clean energy. ”
