Chile is Going Big on Solar Power

Solar power isn't new, but Chile has proven that Latin America can still join the conservation revolution. This is a lofty triumph for the country that also became king in another solar initiative -- solar photovoltaics (PV) use.

For solar energy, the South American nation is investing big time on Atacama 1, a 200-meter-tall solar tower under construction and will soon become a source of renewable energy.

With over 10,600 mirrors being built for it, Atacama 1 is expected to generate a whopping 110 megawatts 24/7.
