Upsolar, a leading provider of solarPV modules and services, commissioned the 152 kWp project in Azcapotzalco, Mexico. Built in partnership with local engineering, procurement and construction firm Wide Range Mexico, the system represented Upsolar’s first commercial installation in Mexico.
Installed at the Alameda Norte Park, the array features 608 Upsolar smart modules, optimized by Tigo Energy. The installation provides enough clean electricity to illuminate the footpaths surrounding the park and the Reynosa Sport Center. Overall, the system generates energy cost savings of more than $77,000 each year while negating the emission of 190 tons of carbon dioxide annually.
This first-of-its-kind project for Mexico City will serve as a benchmarking standard for the local government to assess future clean energy installations on public sites. The system is part of the city’s larger efforts to generate 35 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2024.
