Geothermal Power in Mexico

Mexico is one of the fastest growing geothermal producers in the world. Twenty-seven geothermal power plants are operating in the three Mexican fields, with total geothermal capacity of 953 MW in December 2005. There is a project to install 75 MW in 2006-2008 in the new area La Primavera pending resolution of some environmental matters. CFE has programmed to increase capacity in Cerro Prieto (100 MW) and Los Humeros (25 MW) in 2010.
Direct uses of geothermal heat are widespread in Mexico, including industrial laundries, refrigeration, district and greenhouse heating, and fruit and wood drying.
