Neoen to build 30-MW solar plant in Mexico

French power producer Neoen plans to construct a 30-MW solar park in Mexico’s northeastern state of Nuevo Leon.

The project calls for an investment of USD 60 million (EUR 53.6m) the state’s government said in a press release on Thursday.

The photovoltaic (PV) facility is to be installed on an area of 92 ha (227 acres) in the town of Galeana and is slated to become the biggest of its kind in the Nuevo Leon. Its construction will open 200 direct jobs.

Mexico’s installed solar power capacity stood at 150 MW at the end of 2014, according to the country’s Energy Regulatory Commission, or CRE. Data complied by Bloomberg New Energy Finance shows that the South American country had 348 MW of renewable energy generation plants in 2013.
