MEXICO, (October 14, 2021).- The secretary of energy exhibits a list of companies with interconnection contracts that benefit from lower electricity rates, including OXXO, Walmart, FEMSA, Ternium, Dominos, Starbucks, Coca Cola, Burger King, and Vips.

Bimbo, Kimberly Clark, Oxxo, Sears, Cinépolis, 7 Eleven, Heineken, among others, have abused the self-supply permits approved in 2013 to produce their own electricity and transport it through the use of the CFE’s transmission network.

But this situation “decayed” into an illegal practice, and they created a parallel electricity market, pretending to have partners to whom they sell electricity using the CFE’s transmission lines, thus incurring tax fraud.

“This activity is illegal,” Energy Secretary Rocio Nahle pointed out when she showed a list with the companies that have allegedly committed these crimes.
