IEnova and InterGen have announced that the Energía Sierra Juárez wind project began commercial operations in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico.
InterGen has a 50 per cent interest in the project with IEnova. Energía Sierra Juárez is the first cross-border wind generation project between Mexico and the USA. Energía Sierra Juárez is an approximately US$ 300 million, 155MW wind generation project consisting of 47 Vestas turbines of 3.3MW each. Through a 20-year power purchase agreement with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), the project will interconnect with SDG&E’s Southwest Powerlink transmission system east of San Diego via a new cross-border transmission line. The project could also potentially be connected to the Mexican power grid.
