Eurus Energy Group has selected a new project for its adoption of the “Financing Programme for the Joint Crediting Mechanism Model Projects in FY2021” (JCM Model Projects), which it announced on September 28, 2021. The “9MW Solar Power Project in Casablanca, Valparaiso Region” initially selected for as a JCM Project, has been changed to the “9MW Solar Power Project in San Antonio, Valparaiso Region.” The overall size of the project remains unchanged.
This newly selected project is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 8,232 tons per year, and when combined with the "9 MW Solar Power Project in Yungay, Biobio Region," the annual emission reductions achieved by the JCM Project are expected to be 16,708 tons per year.
