The Tama Te Ra’a (“first rays of the sun” in the Rapa Nui language) marks the first step in this exotic island located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean’s progress towards a 100% clean energy system. The plant, designed and built by ACCIONA in 2018, was donated to the local utility company as a contribution towards the sustainable development of one of the most spectacular landscapes and interesting ethnographical site on the planet.
The solar plant produces an average of around 200 MWh per year, avoiding the direct emission of approximately 135 tonnes of CO2 per year, without taking into account those produced during the sea transport of diesel fuel from the mainland. This clean production will avoid 8% of the consumption of diesel used in the generation of electricity to date.
The photovoltaic system consists of 400 polycrystalline silicon panels supported on ten fixed structures, totalling peak power of 128 kWp (nominal 110 kW). It is completed with an inverter than converts the electricity generated in direct current to alternate current, a transformer that raises the output voltage of 0.42 kilovolts (kV) to 13.2 kV, and a 100-metre-long line that transports the energy to the Malaveri substation for injection into the grid.
With a length of 163.6 km2, and known all over the world for its archaeological remains (particularly the large stone statues called ‘moái’), Easter Island has a population of just over five thousand, mainly concentrated in the capital, Hanga Roa. 40% of the island is covered by the Rapa Nui National Park, declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in 1995.
