SkyPower in $1 billion solar energy projects in Panama
In addition to building 500 MW of solar projects in Panama, SkyPower will also construct a $50 million world-class solar and environmental research centre in Panama dedicated to the advancement of solar photovoltaic (PV) innovation as well as advanced research and innovation in environmental sciences.
To be built in affiliation with several leading universities and research institutions, this research facility will clearly distinguish Panama as the definitive hub for new solar technologies and innovation in Central America, and is expected to generate significant licensing revenues for Panama.
Furthermore, SkyPower is proud to announce it will fund 250 scholarships for Panamanian students who are studying in the fields of solar technology and environmental sustainability, through an annual grant of 10 scholarships per year for each of the 25 years its solar projects are generating clean energy.
This investment in the future of Panamanian students will begin with the first kWh of energy that SkyPower’s solar-energy projects will generate in Panama. ■
