Mexican solar energy company Ilioss and its partner Schneider Electric Mexico have signed a contract to supply over 2 MW of solar power for two plants of beverage maker Envasadora Gugar in Oaxaca and Chiapas states.
This is the first project of the commercial agreement signed by Ilioss and Schneider Electric in September for promoting solar power solutions offered by the first company.
The alliance stems from the new opportunities in Mexico’s electricity sector after the energy reform, the manager of Schneider Electric Mexico, Enrique Gonzalez, said in a press release.
The supplies will allow Envasadora Gugar to offset 2,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Ilioss plans to build and operate over 250 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects by 2017, with financing from Greenwood Energy.
