Grid-connected Photovoltaic Project

Project Summary

The proposed project aims at establishing the basic conditions to facilitate the wide-spread market introduction of grid-connected photovoltaic systems in Mexico, with the two fold purpose of: a) reducing or softening the peak electrical demand in regions with high peak-to-base ratio of electric power demand, resulting from the intensive use of cooling and air conditioning equipment; and b) supporting the grid where the peak supply capacity is limited.
