This work evaluates the energy generated by photovoltaic generators with different mounting angles to the horizontal plane, and the optimum angle is estimated. Other aspects considered are the costs and legal framework associated with installing a photovoltaic power plant in Santa Fe, Argentina. After having done a cost?benefit analysis under different scenarios, results showing the feasibility of building a photovoltaic power plant were obtained. However, the assessment of costs shows that the rates set by Act 26190 need to be modified in order to increase its feasibility in the location studied.
