Their webpage annouces a power generation of up to 78 MW (Megawatts). This capacity was originally set up for 18 MW a couple of years ago. The region is marked by dense fog late in the night and possibly early in the morning; very likely more than 300 days per year, it is a semi arid zone by the desert, close to Atacama Desert. Low precipitation, almost 40-80 mm of rain per year.
