Scot Rank thanked the Energy Ministry and the Federal Electricity Commission for their support in turning the operation of the "Oaxaca I Lamatalaventosa Wind Farm" into a reality.
The "Oaxaca I Lamatalaventosa Wind Farm" works thanks to a supply partnership between Electrica del Valle de Mexico and Walmart de Mexico y Centroamerica, with the latter supplying, installing, and implementing the project. The farm is located at La Ventosa, Oaxaca. It has 27 2.5 MW wind turbines, that is, almost double the capacity of current turbines which enable them to generate a total of 67.5 MW.
Energy will be transported through Mexican Electrical System channels; hence the Energy Ministry and the Federal Electricity Commission were instrumental in the implementation of the project.
The "Oaxaca I Lamatalaventosa Wind Park" is part of Walmart de Mexico y Centroamerica’s commitment to sustainability, which includes generating zero pollutant water discharges by reducing, reusing, and recycling waste and packaging, and expanding the assortment of environment-friendly items.
