Located in Juarez, Mexico, at the United States and Mexico border, is a newly developed 16.8kW solar PV installation built by SolFocus and the Border Environment Cooperation Commission (BECC). The two solar arrays are expected to produce 43.14MWh of electricity per year and is the first CPV installation in the Northern Mexico border region. SolFocus partnered with Sonnergía and BECC for the development and construction of the project in order to promote solar PV in the border region.
“At BECC, we focus on the technical, environmental and social aspects of project development, and work with communities and project sponsors in the U.S.-Mexico border region to develop, finance and build affordable and self-sustaining projects that address a human health or environmental need,” said Daniel Chacón, general manager, BECC. “Bringing together SolFocus and local developer Sonnergía demonstrates the importance of bilateral cooperation between the United States and Mexico on environmental and economic policies and potential business developments in clean energy technologies for this region’s sustainable economic growth.”
