Gransolar plugs-in 35.4 MW solar facility in northern Mexico



The Energía Limpia de La Laguna project, owned by Mexican fund Balam, is located in the state of Durango. The plant incorporates 108,314 polycrystalline modules on 98 single-axis trackers.

Spanish solar developer Gransolar has announced the grid connection of the Energía Limpia de La Laguna PV project.

The plant, owned by Mexican fund Balam, is near Tlahualilo de Zaragoza, in the state of Durango, northern Mexico.

The facility, registered under Mexico’s self-consumption scheme, will sell electricity to the nation’s leading pharmaceutical chain, Farmacias del Ahorro, under a long-term PPA.

It is the second solar plant Gransolar has built for Balam. A first solar park, which also had a capacity of 35.4 MW, was installed in the town of Camargo, in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua. That project was purchased by Balam for around $45 million from Spanish company Avant Energías Renovables, which had contracted Gransolar for construction of the facility in April 2016.

As for the Energía Limpia de La Laguna project, Balam revealed on its website it was financed entirely by Balam Fund I, L.P. and BalamCK16, with Bancomext financing the VAT loan.

The Balam fund has a portfolio of solar and wind projects totalling more than 500 MW in operation or at an advanced stage of construction, according to Gransolar.
