Baja California Wind & Solar Projects 

About: a planned series of utility-scale wind and solar projects located in the heart of the Baja California Renewable Energy Corridor, expected to generate a strong source of clean power to export cross-border into the California (U.S.) market.

Location: Baja California, Mexico near the town of La Rumorosa

Project Size and Generation: Cannon expects to develop 300-500 MW of clean renewable power at the site.

Off-Takers: Power is expected to be sold cross-border to California/United States customers. 

Regional Impacts: The project has potential to provide clean power to many California/United States households and help improve overall air quality in the region.
