The Metropolitan University of Mexico, in Mexico City, plans to build a solar photovoltaic system to provide electricity, and connect to the grid. It will double as a research tool to determine how effective solar power could be in Mexico.

Currently, renewable energy accounts for 3% of Mexico’s energy. The rest comes from gas, nuclear, and hydroelectric dams.

This is a great step in the right direction. If this program is successful, it would be great to see Mexico expand its usage of renewable energy.
