Two wind parks located one on the Yucatan coast and other in the east of the state will start operating next November, but it will take two years to generate the necessary production of clean electric energy in order to reduce the cost of electricity in the whole the region, the Secretary of Economic Development and Labor (Sefoet) announced.
The wind farms installed in Dzilam de Bravo and Tizimín will be the first to start operations to join the production of clean energy at a national level, with the purpose of satisfying 35 percent of the national energy demand.
The head of Sefoet, Ernesto Herrera Novelo, pointed out that the other remaining projects are completing the consultation processes, so it is expected that this year other plants will start operations too.
He specified that the electricity consumption in Yucatan is around 900 megawatts and it is expected that in two years, when all the plants are operating, the cost can be reduced thanks to the generation of clean energies through these wind and photovoltaic plants.
“With all the wind power plants running, the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) will receive 150 megawatts, which is equivalent to 25 % of the power generation necessary to cover the State,” he explained.
Herrera Novelo said that the opneing of these plants will allow the state to substantially improve both the quality of life of the population and the environment, since 98% of the power generation by the CFE is carried out with fuel oil.
“He added that the benefit that some communities have received has been to improve their service infrastructure, since in some cases these companies are building parks, libraries and houses of culture for the benefit of the residents, in addition to the generation of employment in the area, “he concluded.
