Aura Solar I

Objective: Aura Solar I is one of the largest photovoltaic energy projects in Latin America and key in driving Mexico's clean energy revolution forward. The plant generates about 82 Gwh of solar power per year and prevents 42,500 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually.

The Context

Aura Solar I is located in La Paz, the capital city of the Mexican state of Baja California Sur. It has an installed capacity of 39 MW and is one of the first large scale solar photovoltaic plants developed in Latin America.

The Project

The solar power plant is an important driver of the clean energy revolution in Mexico. It is part of the wider initiative "Iniciativa Aura Solar", which aims to develop successful large-scale photovoltaic projects that can capitalise on Mexico's high solar potential. It provides an alternative, renewable energy source that can subsidise the electricity grid.

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.
