    It’s been awhile since I did a post pointing to worthy or interesting posts on other blogs. Not that there hasn’t been plenty of good material to point to, and I certainly have wanted to do a slew of such posts. In fact, I’ve been considering adding a regular (weekly?) post of such links. Question is, what to call it and how frequently should I have it? All suggestions on either point welcome. I also would welcome suggestions for posts from other blogs to include in such a feature.

    Solar Power in Chile

    But for now, here’s a few recent ones I wish to point to that touch about topics often discussed here on Temas.  First up are a couple of articles in EcoWorldly, a decent blog from the Green Options family of blogs.  The first reproduces a press report about Endesa‘s plans for a solar power plant in Northern Chile.  [I’ve long wondered if the hot dry northern lands of Chile might be good for solar power projects.]

    The second reports efforts by Chile’s National Energy Commission (Comision Nacional de EnergiaCNE), Agriculture Ministry and the regional government in Northern Chile to create a solar-powered irrigation system (you can read the CNE press release he got this from here).

    Solar Power in Panama

    A recent post on Burica Press, a Spanish language blog that covers environment issues in Panama, reports that the National Public Services Authority (Autoridad Nacional de los Servicios PúblicosASEP) has adopted a regulation setting out conditions for entities with small-scale photovoltaic systems (say, a rooftop system) to connect to the low-tension grids of power companies.  By the way, you can download the PDF of the ASEP resolution here.

    Uruguay to Build Electric Cars?

    Green Car Congress, a blog about “sustainable mobility,” this week reproduced a press release from Zap announcing that the intendencia of Montevideo has given it the land it needs to build an assembly plant for building electric cars and bikes, presumably for export to Uruguay’s MERCOSUR partners.
