At present, workers are installing more than 730,000 solar panels at a site spanning over 703 hectares (1,737 acres), the local unit of Spanish utility company Iberdrola said Tuesday.

Cuyoaco will be the company’s third PV park in Mexico. Once in operation, it will generate around 551 GWh of electricity per year, or enough to supply more than 162,800 Mexican households, while avoiding the emission of some 145,540 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere.

In parallel, Iberdrola Mexico is constructing a 220-MW wind project in the community of Esperanza, which will be its second wind farm in Puebla.
