Pioneering solar power in Latin America

Aura Solar I is one of the largest photovoltaic energy projects in Latin America. Harnessing the power of the sun to generate over 80,000 MWh of clean electricity annually, the project is a key driver in Mexico's transition away from fossil fuels towards a more sustainable energy future.

The context

The Aura Solar I power plant is located on a 100-hectare site in La Paz, the capital of Mexico's Baja California state. As one of the first large-scale solar photovoltaic plants developed in Latin America, the project is an important trigger in Mexico's clean energy revolution.

The project

Aura Solar I has an installed capacity of 39 MW and is one of the first large-scale solar photovoltaic plants developed in Latin America. The electricity that is produced is supplied to the grid through a new 115kn/2.9km transmission line connected to the substation, "Olas Atlas".

The benefits

By replacing fossil fuel use, the project significantly reduces emissions and helps mitigate the environmental risks of the transport of hydrocarbons into the delicate ecosystem of the Gulf of California. Aura Solar employs local workers and provides employees technical training.
