Paraguay presents a very large hydroelectric capacity and a great solar energy potential, however energy demand is sustained mostly by imported hydrocarbons, especially in the transport field. At present, the country has fiscal incentives for the purchase of electric vehicles but the lack of charging infrastructure avoids the massive penetration of them. Increasing availability and accessibility of charging stations is predicted to increase acquisition of electric vehicles. Currently, a great concern in the country is related to power distribution system; therefore, introduction of electric vehicle charging points into the power system would represent an additional load. In this context, distributed generation throughout the use of solar energy may represent an interesting solution for the introduction of electric vehicles in the urban transport sector in the short time. The proposal analyzed in this paper is the installation of public solar parking lots in different points in Ciudad del Este, around the main green park (Parque de la Rep├?┬║blica) of the city. For this purpose was used some tools like as Geographic Information Systems and simulation software of solar power to identify more adequate sites and sizing the stations. Finally, technical and economic assessment was performed. Additionally, emission avoided in terms of CO2 was estimated.
