June 6 (Renewables Now) - Mexican private university Centro de Ensenanza Tecnica y Superior (CETYS) announced Wednesday a plan to set up two solar photovoltaic (PV) systems of 1.2 MW in total at its campuses in Mexicali and Tijuana to promote sustainability and the use of renewables.

The two campuses will have a total of 3,099 solar panels installed between them. The Baja California-based university said that SunPower Corp (NASDAQ:SPWR) donated 10% of the panels needed for the USD-1.7-million (EUR 1.51m) project.

The 2,873 panels in Mexicali will generate enough power to cover around 50% of the campus’ electricity needs. The campus in Tijuana, where the installation already began, will have a total of 226 panels on its premises.
