San Luiz de la Paz thermoelectric plant is located next to Bajio power plant, majority owned and operated by InterGen, and it will sell most of its power to an undisclosed mining company in a neighboring state under a 20-year power-purchase agreement.

Earlier in 2015, InterGen and partner IEnova opened the US$300mn Energía Sierra Juárez wind farm in Tecate, Mexico, the first border wind facility to export power to the US.

Massachusetts-based InterGen operates 12 power plants in four countries, with a combined 7,892MW generation capacity.
