Latin America’s Biggest Solar Farm

Aura-solar-I-farm-Latin-America-1-537x358

‘Just a few weeks ago the world’s largest solar thermal power plant switched online in Nevada, and now the largest solar plant in Latin America is underway just south of the border. Aura Solar I — a 30-megawatt solar farm– is currently under construction in La Paz, Mexico, and it will be the country’s first utility-scale photovoltaic project. The plant will be capable of fulfilling the energy needs of 164,000 people (64 percent of La Paz’s population), but that’s not even the best part – it will also replace a dirty thermoelectric plant that’s been poisoning residents with air pollution for years.’
