Thanks to its clean technology, it will prevent more than 177,000 tons of carbon dioxide per year from being released into the atmosphere, equivalent to stopping 155,000 vehicles from polluting.
The result of a 968 million peso investment, it will generate enough power for 800,000 inhabitants.
Mexico has great potential to generate clean power, since it has the world's fourth largest total installed capacity for generating electricity from geothermal energy.
The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) is currently developing five additional geothermal energy projects similar to this one.
We are thereby taking firm steps towards the goal set by the General Law on Climate Change, so that in 2024, at least 35% of electricity will be generated from clean sources.
