There is no operational state of energy emergency in the Yucatan Peninsula at this time, federal authorities said on Tuesday, June 18th.
Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal is in permanent contact with the Secretary of Energy of the Feeral Government, Rocío Nahle García, and with the director of the National Center for Energy Control (Cenace), Alfonso Morcos Flores, to follow up on this matter.
Also, on the instructions of Governor Vila Dosal, the State Undersecretary of Energy, Juan Carlos Vega Milke, met with officials of the National Center for Energy Control (Cenace), who reiterated that there is absolutely no situation of emergency in the supply of electricity .
Vega Milke recalled that Vila Dosal has made efforts for Yucatan to achieve energy independence, as well as the application of fairer tariffs. The state Governor has organized meetings with the Federal Secretary of Energy, Rocío Nahle García, and the director of the National Center for Control of Natural Gas (Cenegas), Elvira Daniel Kabbaz, to address the issues of supply and rates.
Also, the Governor has promoted energy independence through alternative energies. Adding the production of clean energy obtained through the wind farms of Dzilam de Bravo and Tizimín, the San Ignacio solar energy park and along with the power generated through solar panels at homes, businesses and farms, the state already has a capacity of more than of 210 Megawatts from renewable energy sources, which is equivalent to satisfying the consumption of 450 thousand homes in the Yucatan.
Likewise, 24 permits have already been granted for new clean energy generation parks, which will add a capacity of 3,400 megawatts; these projects will represent an investment of 4.5 billion US dollars. The State Government is working to promote these projects, so that they can be completed and Yucatan can have greater energy autonomy and more clean energies.
