After suffering from a hurricane, a significant part of Aura Solar I – Mexico’s largest solar plant – was out of commission. When the time came to rebuild a 3 MW section of the project that had been destroyed, Mexico’s largest developer Gauss Energía selected SMA inverters citing reliability and efficiency.
The project rebuild uses 50 Sunny Tripowers which will be responsible for producing energy for 10 percent of the total Aura Solar I project.
The Aura Solar I plant is self-sustainable, and unlike most other solar plants of this size around the globe, it operates without any subsidies from public or private agencies. The facility has also led the way for environmental sustainability in the region, substantially reducing the consumption of fossil fuels.
SMA America is proud to be part of this important rebuild! Head over to our newsroom to see what representatives from SMA America and Gauss Energía had to say about the project.
