The new plant instantly quadruples Mexico’s
installed PV capacity, helping it towards its 35% renewable energy share target by 2026.
Located in La Paz, Baja California
Sur, the project was backed by local development bank Nafin and the International
Finance Corporation (IFC).
Martifer handled EPC at the plant and
will be responsible for Operation and Maintenance (O&M) services.
Aura Solar uses more than 132,000 ground-mounted
PV modules supplied by China's Suntech, and is expected to provide enough power to supply more than 160,000
The project partners say it has
secured the first power purchase agreement (PPA) between a private company and Mexico’s
federal electricity commission, with a 20-year deal in place.
The opening ceremony was attended by
Enrique Peña Nieto, the President of Mexico.
