Next Energy Company will invest US$100 million, by 2016, for the expansion of a wind farm located in the Municipality of Santa Catarina, Nuevo Leon, and for the solar panels technology integration to increase its renewable energy offer, assured Hector Martinez Vivas, Company’s General Director.
In 2013, Next Energy, Comexhidro Viento and Conduit Capital invested US$50 million for the construction of the first wind farm in Nuevo Leon. Currently, the Santa Catarina Wind Farm, located on the Monterrey-Saltillo highway, has eight wind turbine of 443 feet high and an installed capacity of 22 megawatts, with which could supply electricity during 20 years and generate savings for the municipalities. All this allows that Next Energy to be able to supply electric power to public services of the Municipalities of Santa Catarina, Monterrey, San Pedro Garza Garcia, Apodaca, Escobedo, San Nicolas de los Garza and Los Ramones.
