Eosol Energy Mexico to extend PV park to 70 MW

Eosol Energy Mexico is installing an additional 50 MW at its solar photovoltaic (PV) park in the state of Durango to expand the facility to nearly 70 MW.

A year ago the company inaugurated the first phase of the park, consisting of 70,000 modules with a 16.8-MW capacity, connected to the network of national utility Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) and able to produce 32 GWh a year.

The installation of additional modules started last week in the presence of energy minister Pedro Coldwell and governor Jorge Herrera. After the expansion, the plant’s production will be equivalent to the power consumption of over 180,000 homes.

Eosol Mexico, part of Spanish renewable energy developer Eosol Energy, is investing USD 72 million (EUR 65.6m) in the project, planning further expansions in the near future.
