Mexico’s Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) has received in the last week of October 454.5 MW of solar projects for environmental approval.
All projects have filed their Environmental Impact Statements (MIA) with Semarnat's Environmental Impact Assessment Procedure (PEIA), as stated in the country's Ecological Gazette. According to the agency’s weekly bulletin, the combined capacity comes from two large-scale photovoltaic (PV) projects.
The first project is a 153-MW plant, named General Cepeda Solar Park, to be located in the state of Coahuila. The project was submitted by Mexico Lindo Solar PV II SA De CV.
Central Fotovoltaica Ranchitos is the second plant. Submitted by Desarrollos Solares PV de Mexico II SA de CV, this 301.5-MW facility will be located in Jalisco state, the government noted.
Last week, Semanart also received 598 MW of wind and solar applications for environmental approval.
