September 25 (Renewables Now) - Construction company GRS announced on Monday it has completed work and connected to the grid a 35.49-MWp photovoltaic (PV) plant in Mexico's Durango state.
Named Energia Limpia de La Laguna, the solar facility is comprised of 108,314 polycrystalline PV modules mounted on 98 multi-row single axis solar trackers. The company built it for Balam Fund.
The solar park is expected to generate enough power to meet the annual demand of approximately 25,000 homes and offset more than 50,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.
La Laguna's output will be sold through a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) to local Farmacias del Ahorro, one of the largest pharmaceutical groups in Mexico, GRS stated.
Overall, GRS has successfully completed the construction of over 90 PV plants worldwide, and the total capacity will surpass 1.5 GW in the coming months, it noted.
