Mexico’s Incredible Solar Energy Potential

Ideally a location for the generation of solar power should have a relatively high level of solar insolation (ability to generate a significant amount of solar energy), a fairly large amount of economic activity to result from solar energy being deployed, a reasonably low cost of energy installation, higher than average current prices for electricity, and the potential for electricity production through solar power that would offset large amounts of carbon emissions. In other words it better be sunny and near major cities or factories. Read more:

Mexico’s Incredible Solar Energy Potential

Mexico’s solar insulation values are about 5 kilowatt-hours per meter squared per day (kWh/mW/day), which compares favorably with southern California.  Using just 0.06 percent of Mexico’s landmass (or 25 square kilometers in Chihuahua or the Sonoran Desert) would be enough to provide the entire country with electricity (at 2005 rates of usage).  Mexico’s average of solar insulation is 60 percent greater than in Germany, where solar is currently king.  Read more:
