ACCIONA Energía currently owns and operates 556.5 MW in Mexico, with four wind farms in Oaxaca that account for around 20% of the operational wind power capacity in the country, and has built another 303 MW for customers. The result of the latest auction strengthens the company’s presence in Mexico as one of the main players in the country’s renewables market.
The El Cortijo wind power project, whose production was awarded together with the corresponding Clean Energy Certificates (CEL), will be located 40 kilometers south of the city of Reynosa. It will consist of fifty-six 3 MW ACCIONA Windpower turbines that will generate electricity equivalent to the consumption of around 350,000 homes in the area, avoiding the emission of more than 563,000 metric tons of CO2 to the atmosphere from conventional coal-fired power stations.
