Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

This project is to introduce a large-scale solar power plant in Belen, Guanacaste province, Costa Rica.

The solar power plant enables to supply electricity to the customers of Coope Guanacaste, a power company in Guanacaste.

Solar panels to be installed are manufactured by Panasonic Corporation, providing top-level performance in the industry: 19.7% nominal conversion efficiency with a output of 325 watts per panel. This 5MW-scale power plant uses 15,000 PV panels installed in the precinct of Coope Guanacaste.

It enables Coope Guanacaste to diversify the sources of the energy supply by introducing renewable energy, complement the water-power generation in dry season, and contribute to GHG emission reductions.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

2,245 tCO2-eq./year

Emission reductions (ERp) = REp – PEp   ※PEp = 0

                                           = REp REp = Reference CO2 emissions

         = Estimated amount of annual power generation

             × Grid CO2 emission factor

PEp = Project CO2 emissions
