OTEPI, located at the City of Knowledge, has successfully completed the largest photovoltaic roof project conducted in the Republic of Panama, where they were installed more than 4.5 MWp on the roofs of 24 stores Cochez and Novey. With this project, OTEPI has established itself as a leader in Panama and has consolidate its position as a major player in the region in renewable energy.
The project was developed in stages between 2014 and 2017, under the leadership and direction of OTEPI selected as general contractor.
