AMSTERDAM and OSLO, Norway, Feb. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — MPC Energy Solutions (MPCES) has completed the acquisition of Los Santos Solar I project, located in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. The solar photovoltaic (PV) plant reinforces MPCES’ position as a regional leader in renewable energy and supports the country’s ongoing energy transition.
Martin Vogt, CEO of MPC Energy Solutions, said: “Los Santos Solar I contributes towards Mexico’s goals of achieving 50% of electricity generation from clean energy by 2050 and reducing the levels of greenhouse gas emissions by 50%. We are pleased with the swift completion of this project acquisition that marks our first operational asset in Mexico.
