SunEdison’s new Chilean contract will require a $700M investment



SunEdison Inc., the Maryland Heights-based solar manufacturer, has been awarded a contract with the National Energy Commission in Chile to supply 570 gigawatt hours of clean energy per year. SunEdison will have to invest more than $700 million in Chilean projects to meet that demand.
