LG to Install 100MW Solar Project in Mexico
Mexico’s Ecology and Sustainable Development Commission (CEDES) has established an agreement with Korean conglomerate LG Corp to install a 100 MW solar park in the state of Sonora.
With an investment of $400 million dollars, the solar project will provide electric power to local schools, hospitals and public buildings, and is expected to mitigate 90 thousand tons of CO2 emissions.
According to Oscar Rene Tellez Leyva, CEDES Director, the location of the project is still unknown and remains in early planning phase. However, the park will be developed in three stages, and the first stage will provide clean energy for 12.6 thousand homes and reduce CO2 emissions by 17 thousand tons.
