May 26 (Renewables Now) – Petroleum utility Puma Energy, part of Trafigura in Singapore, and its UK-based partner developer PASH Global launched a project to roll out solar power systems with decentralized power generation (DG) stations in Puerto last week Rico.

The partners will cover the roof areas of 200 Puma stations with around 20,500 solar modules that will produce around 30,000 MWh of electricity annually. The project, which has a total investment of $ 25 million, is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2022.
