Without doubt Tamaulipas is the State that is growing in matter of renewable energy and in an historic act, the Energization of the Reynosa I Wind Power Park, considered the largest in Mexico and one of the largest in Latin America.
THE RENEWABLE ENERGIES GENERATION INFRASTRUCTURE AN ENGINE FOR DEVELOPMENT
Adrian Katsew, general director of Zuma Energia, said on his message that the Energization of the Reynosa I Wind Power Park will allow connecting this large Park with the national network of transmission and thus contribute in an important manner with clean and competitive energy as each one of the wind turbines are energized.
This proves that renewable energies generation infrastructure is a development engine, particularly in usually remote regions, including the improvement of logistic conditions nearby the construction activity, as well as the infrastructure of the neighboring communities.
“Currently, Tamaulipas is the State with the most wind power activity in Mexico and renewable energies are strategic to guarantee our energy science and essential to accomplish goals we have settled as country,” said the director of Zuma Energy.
TAMAULIPAS SHAPES EXCEPTIONAL WIND POWER CORRIDORS TO FAVOR THE INSTALLATION OF WIND GENERATORS
Pedro Joaquin Coldwell, secretary of Energy in Mexico, shared interesting data about clean energy generation infrastructure growth in Mexico; and is just that pace has being accelerated, he underlined that in 2012 the percentage of capability installed at clean centrals was of 25 % of the total of the electric national system, and by the end of this six years period will reach 32 %.
He also said that in the wind power sector the rhythm of development of new centrals has increased and the current capability has triplicated regarding what was at the beginning of the six years period, reaching the 4 thousand 200 megawatts.
THE LARGEST WIND POWER PARK ON ITS TYPE IN LATIN AMERICA ARRIVED TO REYNOSA
