Wind energy in Mexico: wind farm in Nuevo Leon

Eolica Santa Catarina said its $51 million wind farm in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon started operating.

The wind farm uses state-of-the-art General Electric turbines.
The wind farm will supply electricity to six cities, including the industrial center of Monterrey, in Nuevo Leon, providing annual fuel savings of 15 million pesos ($1.13 million).
Foreign trade bank Bancomext provided $36 million in financing for the project, with the remaining $15 million provided by consortium partners Comexhidro Viento and NextEnergy of Mexico, and U.S.-based Conduit Capital.
