As of the end of 2014, Mexico had an installed capacity of 2,551 MW, in 31 wind farms operating in Oaxaca, Baja California, Chiapas, Jalisco, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosi, and Nuevo Leon. Currently six more projects are in construction that will start operations in 2015, contributing 732 MW more to the country’s wind-power installed capacity. By 2018, more than 9,500 MW are expected to be available, representing close to 8% of Mexico’s total power generation.
- Wind power currently produced in Mexico is enough to meet the power needs of 525,000 households.
- Investment to date in wind farms exceeds 5 billion US dollars, with more than 1200 wind generators operating in the country. By 2018 investments in wind farms are expected to increase to close to 14 Billion US Dollars.
- Each MW of wind power installed prevents the emission of 2,900 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, thus significantly slowing the progression of climate change.
Mexico WindPower 2016 will take place in Mexico city on 24-25 February 2016. The 2-day conference and business fair is organised annually by GWEC, AMDEE and EJ Krause.
