The Chilean Program Solar is a Chilean Government initiative developed through the CORFO and the Energy Ministry that drafted a 2025 Roadmap in a collaborative process with different public, corporate, academic and civil society representatives.
This document defined an initial series of 50 initiatives that will help to take advantage of the singularity of the Atacama Desert for developing a national solar industry with highly developed technological capabilities to deal with local challenges and became in a competitive actor in the international solar power industry. This portfolio of projects has a total budget of US$ 800 million.
The Solar Energy Program is implemented by the Chilean Solar Committee (Committee for the development of the Solar Energy Industry).
