SeeNews | December 16, 2014 — Aura Solar, part of Mexican energy project developer Gauss Energia, said Monday it will build a photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Honduras that will produce 125 GWh per year.

The company will install 200,000 polycrystalline modules within 150 ha (371 acres) in southern Honduras, offsetting 90,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions, Aura Solar’s chairman, Daniel Servitje, said in a press release.

The project will receive private investments from Mexico and Honduras and financing from the World Bank’s International Finance Corp (IFC), Mexican state-owned bank Bancomext and DEG, subsidiary of German development bank KfW.

Aura Solar operates a 39-MWp PV plant in northwestern Mexico, selling the output to state-run utility Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) under a 20-year agreement.
