Project description:

San Miguel hydroelectric project is a run-of-river renewable hydroelectric plant with an effective power rating of 44.4 MW, located at the left margin of the Calderas River, in the municipalities of San Francisco and San Luis, Department of Antioquia. The energy generated by the project feeds the National Interconnected System of Colombia.

The project activity contemplates the production of clean energy for the Colombian power grid with low emissions technology using a flow of water.

The power plant increases the supply of non-GHG producing electricity to the grid and offsetting thermal generation and consequently mitigating future GHG. The project reduces approximately 109,912 tCO2/year.

This project advances the following United Nations Sustainability Development Goals:
