Merida’s city hall installed a PV (photovoltaic) system in 6 “Centros de Superacion Integral”, thereby reducing electric power consumption.
The inauguration ceremony took place at the Centro de Superacion Integral Manuel Crescencio Rejon, where mayor Renan Barrera Concha stated that on public infrastructure, the real expense is not the construction and manpower but the budget for the program’s daily use.
“We are gathered today to observe one of the biggest technological advances of this administration. We are seeking the best investment possible, one that will directly benefit Meridanos“, he said.
The mayor emphasized that the City is not limited to performing public works, such as road construction, parks, or water works, but to track the positive impact of the community investments that will improve living conditions of the general population.
City Hall invested 4,150,000 pesos ($276,666 USD) in 11 “Centros de Superacion Integral.”
“The solar panels will reduce operational costs. The savings will be used to buy equipment and materials for the training courses that these centers offer”, he said.
“That’s what we do in our administration: minimize unnecessary costs and invest on medium term targets. The solar panels savings will show up in one or two years of not paying expensive electricity bills,” he concluded.
