During the Latam Future Energy Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean Renewable Energy Summit, held in the Dominican Republic, leading players analyzed the current situation of the photovoltaic sector in the region.

Sergio Rodríguez, Service Manager Latin America and Mexico, Solis, highlighted the strength of the company’s distributed generation (DG) segment in Mexico and the importance of growing in storage projects. In an interview with MBN, Rodríguez said that DG today represents the only hope for the solar market and that companies with utility-scale projects are looking toward DG to maintain their business. 

"The entire Mexican solar sector has been sustained in recent years thanks to DG. We are growing annually between 450 and 550MW in residential, commercial and industrial projects," he said.

According to Rodríguez, DG has been growing steadily, leading the company to work on strengthening storage systems for regions such as Baja California and the Yucatan Peninsula, where the grid is very unstable. "We are betting on that and next year we will begin to take off," he explained.

Rodríguez, however, stressed the importance of storage. “There is still a limitation in the cost of batteries for residential and large-scale projects, but we are moving towards that technology and we have more than 500 engineers working every day to be able to satisfy and power the world with clean energy," he added.

Although many investors are willing to bet on storage projects from 500MW to 1GW, there is still no confidence to take that step in Mexico due to a lack of certainty. "We are committed to these developments in Mexico; we only need clear and responsible energy policies with a long-term horizon," Rodríguez said.

Solis has been able to improve its products significantly over the past years and has adapted its solutions to the Mexican market. The company has also improved the internal quality of its inverters so they can now withstand the grid’s instability. 

"Innovation is the central part of every photovoltaic company. In three years, we will have more inverters, much more robust and, above all, tropicalized for each market, including Chile, Argentina and the Caribbean," he asserted.
