SDC Energreen Aljaval to build 30 MW-AC project in Mexico


SDC Energreen Aljaval, a joint venture between Mexico’s Energreen and Spanish group Aljaval, is set to develop a 30 MW-AC solar PV project in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Submitted by Mexican company Delicias Solar PV, the project has passed the government’s Environmental Impact Assessment and has been granted approval by the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT).

SDC Energreen Aljaval is set to build the project by the end of 2015 in the central state of Chihuahua. The company will erect the 35.2 MW-DC solar farm on 47.95 hectares of land using 148,784 PV modules of 250 W peak each. The plant is expected to generate enough electricity to supply more than 31,296 homes a year, or 66.5 gigawatt hours annually.

The project follows approval of a 33 MW-AC PV project that SDC Energreen Aljaval is likewise building in Chihuahua for local company Rancho El Trece Solar PV, which it expects to construct in mid-2015.
