    AMLO highlights CFE's investment in clean energy: hydroelectric and solar plants

    November 28, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      President Andrés Manuel López Obrador highlighted the investment in clean energy with the modernization of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE).

      After announcing that Mexico will achieve autonomy in gasoline and diesel by the end of 2023, he pointed out that the electricity industry has also been "rescued from the privatization process and corruption".

      AMLO will increase CFE's capacity with hydroelectric power plants and solar cell farm

      President López Obrador said that at the end of this six-year term, the CFE , with an investment of 9.3 billion dollars, will increase its installed capacity by close to 10 thousand Mega Watts.

      This will be achieved thanks to the construction and modernization of works, including hydroelectric plants:

      "38 projects are already in process basically boosting the generation of clean energy with the renovation of equipment, turbines, in 16 hydroelectric plants," said AMLO.

      Solar energy park in Sonora

      The federal president also recalled the construction of the "largest solar energy park in Latin America located in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora".

      The solar park, which will be located in Sonora, will be at the service of the Federal Electricity Commission.

      AMLO reiterates commitment to free Internet from the CFE

      Likewise, López Obrador reiterated his commitment to the expansion of the free internet network through the Federal Electricity Commission.

      "With the support of CFE workers, next year we will finish (connecting) fiber optic lines and 3,800 antennas are being installed, with which we will reach 10,979 to comply with the free internet service," he said.
