Mexico exported wind power to California


The county board of supervisors of San Diego said it approved the laying of a cable that will bring wind energy generated in Baja California, to Sempra substation in Jacumba, near the border.

This cable will allow Sempra subsidiary San Diego Gas and Electric, import energy from wind farm in Sierra de Juarez. The grid will stretch authorized nearly a mile.

The authorization is made despite the federal government in Mexico has not authorized the Sierra Juarez wind power project to export electricity.

Supervisors also approved a new solar power project of 120 turbines in the McCain Valley.
