Enel, through its Mexican renewable subsidiary Enel Green Power México (EGPM), has started construction works at its 754 MW1 Villanueva solar photovoltaic plant in Viesca, Coahuila State, which is the largest PV facility under construction in the Americas and Enel’s largest solar project worldwide.


Enel will be investing around 650 million US dollars in the construction of the facility and, thus, contribute to Mexico’s growing electricity sector with the clean energy generated by Villanueva. The facility is expected to enter into service in the second half of 2018 and to generate over 1,700 GWh each year, equivalent to the energy consumption needs of over 1.3 million Mexican households.
