This episode of SunCast features Alvaro Garcia of X-Elio, a Gestamp subsidiary. Alvaro has the distinction of being chosen, during his Martifer Solar days, as the EPC for the first Utility-scale project ever financed and built in Mexico - the Aura Solar project in Baja California. And as an ex-pat living in Mexico for more than 5 yrs now, he has some interesting insights into doing business within the confines of the Mexican “economy”. You’ll be surprised to hear what he says about corruption. We discuss the value of hiring local, the key roles to fill in your solar startup, and this year’s Mexico solar auctions. If you’re curious at all about how to develop solar in Mexico, today’s show should scratch your itch.
