Fruit producer Subsole is set to use the Atacama's solar-energy potential
One thing not lacking in Chile's Atacama Desert is sunshine.
Being the driest desert on Earth, it boasts some of the highest levels of sunshine in the world.
Here in the north of Chile, clouds appear on about 30 days a year at most.
Such weather conditions, combined with huge stretches of empty land along the Pacific coast, should make it an ideal place to tap the sun for energy.
But solar panels are almost nowhere to be seen.
