Companies in Mexico need more electricity – level 1

15-09-2023 15:00

Factories and storage places in Mexico need more electricity for their work. They want to make solar panels themselves. They even want to pay for it.  But the government controls energy in the country.

Mexico already has problems with electricity. It will get worse because big companies like Tesla come to Mexico. They will start their business in the north of Mexico. Mexico only lets people make 500 kilowatts of renewable energy on their own. Some organizations ask the government to let them make more. They need more electricity for their work.

The world is using less fossil fuels. But Mexico’s president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador wants to use more of them. He does not help companies which use renewable energy.

Difficult words: control (to have power over someone), renewable energy (energy which comes from the sun, wind, and so on), fossil fuel (coal, oil, and gas).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What are the implications of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador's policies on renewable energy in Mexico?
