Ancient Jalisco site goes green

The Centro Interpretativo Phil Weigand at the Guachimontones archaeological site has become the first museum in Jalisco to be powered exclusively by “green” energy.

The installation of 64 solar panels and the corresponding technology cost the state government just over 1.1 million pesos.  The funds came from a program established last year to develop measures to reduce climate change – the Programa Estatal para la Acción ante el Cambio Climático 2017.


Two more sites, the train stations at La Vega and San Marcos — part of the Vias Verdes project — will soon switch to solar energy, according to Jalisco Culture Secretary Myriam Vachez Plagnol.
