Mexico Building Latin America’s Largest Solar Farm To Replace Old, Dirty Oil-Power Plant
  Last week President Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited Mexico for whats traditionally called the Three Amigos meeting. In the daylong rendezvous, energy issues were slated to play a major role, with Obama and Harper jockeying for room when it comes to the impending decision on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline that would bring dirty crude oil down from Canada to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

However, Mexico also has some major energy changes in the pipeline, and after decades of state-run oil company PEMEX having sole purview over fossil fuel extraction, international investment and companies will now be let into the mix after recent constitutional reforms. This will increase oil flows from Americas southern neighbor into those same Gulf refineries as Keystone XL might. At the same time renewable energy has started to take off in Mexico, with construction of the biggest solar power plant in Latin America, Aura Solar I a 30-megawatt solar farm in La Paz, Mexico the latest signal.


If Mexican President Enrique Peña Nietos recent summit with North American leaders is an indication of the significance of the trios relationship, then his expected upcoming visit to the Aura I solar farm can be seen as a benchmark on the countrys path to a more renewable future. Mexico is poised to be Latin Americas solar hotbed according to Greentech Media, with the solar markets installed base expected to quadruple from 60 megawatts to 240 megawatts by the end of this year. Mexicos energy ministry has set a target for 35 percent of power generation to come from non-fossil fuel sources by 2024.


We must grasp this opportunity to extending volume growth in Latin America,especially our ZYD series transformer oil purifier.
