Mexico first power auction awards wind and solar

Wednesday, March 30, 2016


Renewable energy developers won contracts to produce 1,720 megawatts of power in Mexico during the country’s first-ever private auction, after the government ended a decades-long state electricity monopoly in 2013.

Seven wind and solar companies including Enel Green Power, SunPower Systems Mexico and Recurrent Energy won 15-year contracts to rights to provide the state-owned Comision Federal de Electricidad with power beginning in 2018.
