In the first meeting, Vila Dosal and Nahle García discussed matters related to the construction of the two new Combined Cycle plants of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), one in Mérida and one in Valladolid, as well as the increase in the flow of natural gas, projects that respond to one of the main demands of society, which is to improve the supply of electricity and natural gas to the state for the benefit of the Yucatecans, as well as to boost the economic growth of the state.

Accompanied by the head of the Ministry of Economic Development and Labor (Sefoet), Ernesto Herrera Novelo, Vila Dosal discussed with Nahle García the current situation regarding the portfolio of 24 renewable energy projects to be developed in the state, which if completed will produce approximately 3,400 megawatts with an investment of more than 70 billion pesos, which would make Yucatan the first state in the entire Republic that would be generating more clean energy than it consumes.

Similarly, in the presence of Sefoet’s Undersecretary of Energy, Juan Carlos Vega Milke, Vila Dosal raised with the Secretary of Energy the possibility that, through the Trust for Saving Electricity (FIDE), support to elderly retired people so that they can acquire photovoltaic panels, which will represent an important respite in their economy because they will pay less on their CFE receipts, in addition to helping Yucatán move towards a greater generation of clean energy.
