Construction began in June 2017 and Power Purchase Agreements were reached with ~70% sold to state owned investment grade off-taker and the remaining ~30% sold to local industrial offtakers.[7] Tierra Mojada uses HA gas turbine technology and digital solutions from GE power.[8][9] Tierra Mojada was designed to operate with Waha gas from the VAG Pipeline but in July 2020 was part of issues in the greater Guadalajara area where Pemex gas was being substituted.[10] Commercial operations began in October 2020.[7] In December 2020, Fitch Ratings gave Tierra Mojada a final rating of BBB indicating a stable outlook.[11]
