Photovoltaic plant in Sonora, Mexico, largest in Latin America

Mexico City, Feb 2 (Prensa Latina) As part of the Sonora Clean Energy Plan of Mexico, United States, Canada Free Trade Agreement (T-MEC), a photovoltaic plant will be installed in that state, the largest facility in Latin America, Governor Alfonso Durazo announced on Thursday.

The plan will generate one gigawatt of energy with an investment of 1,250 million dollars, said the governor, who pointed out that the five gigawatts planned to produce through 40 other facilities, will require a total investment of around seven billion dollars.

Puerto Peñasco is the site where the plan is being built. Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard and 60 Mexican ambassadors visited the place so as to learn about the project that has positioned the state as a global reference in renewable energies.

Durazo hosted the visit and, assisted by technicians and engineers, explained to the diplomats the potential to generate clean energies after having the energy and solar power in El Gran Desierto de Altar and the largest lithium deposit in the country.

The photovoltaic plant covers 2,000 hectares of solar panels, which makes it the largest facility in Latin America and the seventh-largest factory globally.
