Abstract


The Colombian government has carried out different contingence plans to counter the consequences of the climatological cycle known as EL NIÑO phenomenon that began in October 2015 but still, have been reported losses in agricultural sector, forest fires, low water levels in the rivers, safe water shortage and limited generation power. This article has as objective to analyze the benefits of solar energy implementation as alternative source of generation power in affected zones by these climate changes. In order to do that, a study of the Cajicá meteorological data from 2010 to February 2016 was made, with the purpose to determine the increase factor that would have the energy generation of a solar installation during this climatological phenomenon.
