Hermosillo, Mexico, July 27, 2012 — Sonora Energy Group Hermosillo, S.A. announced that the installed capacity of its solar energy project called SEGH-CFE 1 in Puerto Libertad, Sonora will increase to 46.8 MW.
The original design was to build and operate a 39 MW solar project. However, after consulting further with our development and engineering partners, American Electric Technologies and ABB, the developers determined that a larger installed capacity will allow Sonora Energy Group Hermosillo to maximize its production permit and sell more than 106,728,000 kWh of electricity each year to the Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), Mexico’s national utility.
SEGH-CFE 1 is currently in construction on privately owned land immediately adjacent to CFE’s 632 MW heavy fuel burning power generation station in Puerto Libertad, Sonora. The project is located about 110 miles south of the U.S. border.
