Companies in Mexico need more electricity – level 2

15-09-2023 15:00

Industrial parks and warehouse operators in Mexico need a lot of electricity for their growing businesses. They want to finance the construction of solar panels themselves, but the government controls the energy sector.

Mexico already has problems with the power grid, and experts say that big companies like Tesla, which will start their business in the north of the country, will need a lot more electricity.

Currently, there is a limit on self-generated renewable energy to 500 kilowatts, but several organizations asked the government to raise this limit. While the world is turning away from fossil fuels, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador supports using fossil fuels, and he doesn’t support renewable projects.

Difficult words: warehouse (a big building where companies keep their products or material), power grid (electrical lines which transfer electricity over an area), self-generated (something what you produce yourself).

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

What strategies can industrial parks and warehouse operators use to finance the construction of solar panels in Mexico despite the government control of the energy sector?
