Around 450 kW of solar modules have been supplied to a Mexican project developer for installation on a roof in Aguascalientes owned by a supermarket chain.

The facility consists of 1056 aleo solar AG aS_16 165-watt modules and aleo also supplied the inverters.

aleo says that although there is currently no solar electricity subsidy programme in Mexico, the installation of PV systems is becoming more lucrative since electricity prices have recently risen dramatically in Mexico.

Robert Schwarzinger, director of Business Development North America, explains: ‘The huge demand for energy in Mexico is matched by the excellent insolation conditions, meaning that photovoltaic systems for proprietary use make perfect sense.’ He adds: ‘We see a lot of future potential in Mexico, especially in the area of industrial rooftop use.’
