San Antonio-based solar panel maker Mission Solar Energy completed its first project south of the border.
Mission Solar Energy LLC has installed an 89 kilowatt solar power system at the Centro Oncológico Pediátrico de Baja California in Tijuana.
Financed through a $125,000 grant from the San Antonio-based North American Development Bank, the solar array uses 288 of the San Antonio-based company's solar panels at the pediatric cancer center.
Mission Solar Energy provided the solar panels for the project while the NADBank grant paid for design, engineering and construction. Spanish renewables company Enertis served as the developer.
Established in January 2007, the facility provides treatment to pediatric cancer patients.
Mission Solar Energy recently launched several new product lines of solar panels for commercial and residential projects. Mission Solar president Jae Yang said the company was proud be a part of the project.
"As we expanded our product sales into Mexico, we felt it was important to make a local impact through projects such as this one," Yang said in a statement. "We hope this gesture will brighten the spirits of the patients and staff at the Centro Oncologico Pediatrico de Baja.”
