Scientists develop cheaper solar panels in Mexico

Scientists develop cheaper solar panels in Mexico | Indigenismo | Scoop.it

Mexico has the third greatest solar energy potential in the world, and it’s Northern deserts provide near perfect conditions for producing solar electricity. Now the country’s public and private sector are looking to invest in the power of the sun.
 
The Sonora desert. Endless and arid. Here, life struggles to survive under the harsh rays of the sun.
 
But this same desert could be the answer to Mexico’s energy future. It’s one of the few places in the world with the perfect conditions to generate solar electricity.
 
Rafael Cabanillas and his team of scientists are here to develop cheaper and more efficient solar panels.
 
Rafael Cabanillas Lopez, Coordinator Solar Investigation Project, said, “We’ve got to make this technology more accessible and make it easier for solar power to compete economically with other energy sources.”
 
The team hopes that mass production of these cheaper panels will make Mexico’s developing solar industry more attractive to the public and private sector.
 

If solar panels were placed on just one percent of Mexico’s land, scientists say the electricity generated could power the whole country.
 
With production from Mexico’s huge oil fields declining, The government is increasingly looking at alternative energy supplies. Ex-President Felipe Calderon recently inaugurated a 4,000-panel solar power plant in Baja California.
 
The private sector is also slowly turning on to solar power. Forty percent of this factory’s electricity is now being supplied by the new solar panels on their roof.
