Over the next five years, Mexico will become Latin America’s leader within the photovoltaic market, said Yin Rongfang, executive vice president of Trina Solar’s Photovoltaic System Business Unit.

Rongfang explained that although the process to reach the top of the photovoltaic market in the region will take time, the country’s geographical location, between 14 and 33 degrees of latitude to the north, will undoubtedly serve as an advantage.

He noted that Durango, Baja California Sur, Chihuahua, Sonora, Nuevo Leon, Yucatan and Coahuila are the states that have the best conditions to exploit this type of energy.

According to the executive vice president of Trina Solar, the Mexican market covers between 8 and 10% of global operations; however, in the next five years, he foresees that the quota will hike up to 15 or 20%.
