Tres Mesas Wind Energy Project in Llera de Canales, Tamaulipas

Status: Completed construction

Background

The Project will increase installed capacity of renewable energy resources, which will reduce the demand on traditional fossil‐fuel‐ based energy production and contribute to the displacement of greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants from power generated by fossil fuels.

Description

The project consists of the design, construction and operation of 148.5‐MW wind farm located in Llera de Canales, Tamaulipas (the “Project”). The energy generated will be purchased by Sigma Alimentos, S.A. de C.V., and other subsidiaries of Alfa S.A.B. de C.V., as well as by subsidiaries of Walmart de México S.A.B. de C.V. pursuant to two long‐term power purchase agreements (PPAs) signed with the respective special purpose Project company.

Benefits

The estimated environmental and human health outcomes resulting from the installation of 148.5 MW of new renewable energy generation capacity are:   

a) Generation of approximately 510 GWh of electricity during the first year of operation,1 and

b) An expected displacement of approximately 200,599 metric tons/year of carbon dioxide, 1 metric ton/year of sulfur dioxide, and 700 metric tons/year of nitrogen oxides.
