Two wind projects studied for US "joint implementation"

Feasibility studies for two wind projects in Mexico to mitigate greenhouse gases are among four studies commissioned by the Secretariat of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, a tri-national commission, based in Montreal, Canada, formed under the North American Free Trade Agreement. The wind projects are: a co-operative effort by Mexico's Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and Mexico's Institute for Electrical Research to install a 150 MW plant in the state of Oaxaca; and a collaboration between Arizona Public Service Co of Phoenix, a utility, and Mexico's CFE to install a wind and solar powered "mini-grid" in a village in Baja California. The wind projects being studied for their environmental, economic and operational feasibility, are both "joint implementation" projects agreed to under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Under "joint implementation," rich countries offset their greenhouse gas emissions by paying for reductions of emissions in poor countries.
