During this 2023, electricity rates will have an increase of 7.1% per year, which means that in your next bill you will see an increase compared to what you were paying in 2022, this applies to domestic rates and is part of the adjustments and increases in products and services that are given annually according to inflation.

The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) announced this increase in rates, which is considerable, as it is the first significant increase since January 2017. As of May of this 2023, users will have to pay for every 75 kilowatt hours (kWh) per month 0.969 pesos. In May 2022, the charge was 0.902 pesos. For December the cost per 75 kWh will be 1,011 pesos.

In May there will be a discount for 20 states

The heat wave that comes with the arrival of spring will favor discounts in domestic electricity rates due to the increase in the consumption of electricity in homes as they resort to air conditioning systems to cool the house. The governor of Sinaloa, Rubén Rocha Moya, confirmed that the discount on the electricity bill for the heat wave of 2023 will be applied starting in May and will be in effect during the six months of heat or summer until October 31.

This measure seeks to reduce the excessive costs for the electric service that is generalized in homes with air conditioning during the heat season and applies only to states where temperatures exceed 30 degrees Celsius. The discount in the electric rate will be applied in 20 of the 32 states of the country, that is to say in:

Baja California
Nuevo Leon
San Luis Potosi

Subsidized electricity rates will prevent an uncontrolled increase in electricity prices

The tariff figures can be consulted on the website of the company that provides electricity services to a large part of the country, where each one is detailed with respect to the type of electricity consumption. It should be noted that the government has implemented a plan to counteract the effects of inflation on the pockets of Mexicans by means of a subsidy to the electric service.

In this regard, the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) has earmarked 76,625 million pesos to subsidize electricity rates during 2023, thus controlling the price of electricity and preventing uncontrolled increases.
