Solar farm offsets tonnes of carbon emissions

April 5th, 2019, Published in Articles: Energize

One of the world’s largest solar power companies has announced that its first solar power project of 68 MWp in Mexico started commercial operations recently. The solar plant, located in Aguascalientes, Mexico, is powered by over 200 000 Canadian Solar high-efficiency poly modules CS6U-P. The plant will generate 145 GWh of electricity annually, enough to power 20 690 households and offset 72 700 tonnes of carbon dioxide emission each year.

In addition to that, a total of 535 jobs were created during the PV plant construction and more than 15 new jobs are expected to be created for operations and maintenance during the upcoming 20 years the plant is in operation. The company says it will provide operations and maintenance services to the plant.
