The state announced Monday the reactivation of the wind energy farm installed for over a decade that was closed by the past administration.

The step is an additional one that marks a new path to differentiate from the administration of now former Governor Jaime Bonilla.

State Energy Commission Director Joaquín Gutiérrez explained the contract with the maintenance company ended back in August. Operations were forced to get suspended.

Director Gutiérrez said Governor Marina Avila asked that the La Rumorosa farm was reopened.

Annually, wind speed reaches an average of 7.8 meters per second, which is considered ideal for wind energy production.

The farm produces the equivalent of about 80 percent of energy needed for street lighting in Mexicali. In a single day the farm produces up to 100 MW per hour — or around 60 tons of carbon dioxide that is not spread in the atmosphere.
