Energy America LLC, a USA-based solar module manufacturer, said Wednesday it will provide solar modules for a 200-megawatt solar farm project in Mexico.
Energy America said it will supply photovoltaic modules for the project that plans to build 11 solar farms in the Latin American nation.
The solar project aims to provide electricity to 1.9 million residents in Mexico, and will cut 920,000 tons of carbon emissions a year, the company said.
The first one is scheduled to come online in the third quarter of 2022,
Energy America will develop and build the 200 MWp project in Mexico. The construction is expected to start in Q4 2021 and Q1 2022 respectively, and the projects will reach commercial operation before March 2023. Once in operation, the solar power plants will generate approximately 350 GWh of electricity annually. 60% of the electricity generated by the plant will be purchased by distribution companies under two 25-year power purchase agreements (PPAs)
The rest of the electricity will be purchased under long-term private PPAs which are under negotiation.
Furthermore, talks are also underway with CFE for the development of various solar farms around Mexico.
