Enel Green Power to invest US $160 million in solar plant

The largest solar power plant in the Americas is scheduled to start operations by mid-2019 in the central Mexico state of Tlaxcala.

Located on a 1,000-hectare expanse of land straddling the Tlaxco and Hueyotlipan region, the Magdalena 2 plant will be built by the Italian multinational Enel Green Power.

Representing an investment of US $160 million, the plant will have 550,000 solar panels and generate 231.8 MW.

Enel’s head of renewable energies for Mexico and Central America, Paolo Romanacci, stated that Tlaxcala was the ideal place for the project due to its competitive advantages, including its connectivity and economic stability.

Enel Green Power is one of the biggest renewable energy investors and operators in the country in terms of installed capacity and project portfolio.
