Spain-based solar energy company Onyx Solar will supply the transparent photovoltaic glass to generate clean electricity to feed the new factory that Heineken builds in Meoqui, Chihuahua, Mexico.
The new plant will have an initial capacity of producing 5 million hectoliters per year. It plans to be the greenest factory of the country.
The transparent PV glass will be installed at the offices’ building and other process areas. It will enable the building to be energy self-sufficient. It will also improve its energy efficiency and thermal comfort. It will have a perfect integration thanks to the possibility of customizing the glass in terms of shape, color, size, and degree of transparency.
