The decision of the National Energy Commission as a regulatory body is based mainly on the acute drought that the national electricity system is going through, which led to the issuance of a Preventive Rationing Decree.

Santiago de Chile.- The National Energy Commission (CNE) issued, through Exempt Resolution No. 325 of May 3, 2022, the postponement of the final withdrawal, disconnection and cessation of operations of the Bocamina II generating unit presented by Enel Generación Chile SA, in accordance with the provisions of article 72°-18 of the General Law of Electric Services and article 33 of the Regulation of Coordination and Operation of the National Electric System.

After the security of supply analysis carried out by the National Electrical Coordinator for the period April 2022 – March 2023, the National Energy Commission resolved through said resolution exempting the postponement of the output of said plant (350 MW) until September 30.

The decision of the regulatory body is based mainly on the acute drought that the national electricity system is going through, which led to the issuance of a Preventive Rationing Decree and the implementation of various measures aimed at reducing possible risks of energy shortages that could affect the families.

The extension of the operations of the Bocamina 2 plant marks the beginning of its closure process, which will allow working on a just energy transition.

The CNE is committed to the decarbonization of the electricity matrix, which is why it is participating with the Ministry of Energy in the working group to analyze and plan the strengthening of electricity security for the years 2022 and 2023.
