Atlas Eolico Mexicano begins operations in its 1st stage

With a US$2 million investment, Mexico’s Ministry of Energy (SENER) started operations of the first stage of the Atlas Eolico Mexicano, an information system that generates precise data of temperature and wind speed across Mexico. The first stage of the Wind Atlas is the installation and operation of seven towers 80 meters tall, equipped with anemometers, pyrometers, lightning rods, photovoltaic solar panels and satellite connectivity equipment, to broadcast precise temperature and wind speed data.
