Mexico’s Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) issued a permit to install the Photovoltaic Park in the Municipality of Marin, Nuevo Leon, with a 54.9-megawatt capacity, enough to supply energy to more than five companies and the Autonomous University of Nuevo Leon (UANL).

The project will be developed by the CWG firm and its Spanish partner Dhamma Energy, thus reduciung the electricity cost for UANL and some local firms, such as Energéticos Centrifugados del Norte. The initial investment will amount US$100 million and it will have a second stage, with a capacity to generate 50-megawatt. The plant construction will begin in October 2016, on a 269-hectare area and it is expected to start operations by June 2017, according to CRE’s regulation.
