The Ministry of Mines and Energy and the Parex Resources officially presented the first pilot project for geothermal electricity generation.
The pilot will:
- produce 100 effective kW of electricity, which will replace 5% of the energy generated from fossil fuels;
- reduce emissions up to 550 tons of CO2 eq per year
This way, the system will be able to generate up to 72,000 kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the average consumption of 480 families in a month.
