In order not to depend on the CFE, the hotel industry of Quintana Roo has installed the first Tesla battery in Cancun in search of improving energy

In order not to depend directly on the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), and in the face of the constant blackouts registered in the State, the hotel industry of Quintana Roo is looking for options to generate green energy and solve its consumption.

The sector carried out the first tests in the Hotel Zone of Cancun, through the Monterrey capital company Solar Fuel Eco Energy S.A. de C.V., which installed a Tesla battery that allows storing solar energy to operate a 200-room hotel during peak hours—electricity demand.

This model has spread throughout the destination and there are at least four hotels in the Riviera Maya with this type of facilities. Now the first investment has been registered in Cancún.

The company, represented by Bruce Rolland Santos, assures that in Quintana Roo they are in talks to install this type of energy solution in at least 30 thousand rooms from Costa Mujeres, Cancún and the Riviera Maya, with an investment of around 500 million US dollars.

The battery depends on the energy supply provided by solar panels installed on the roof of the hotel and allows up to 35 percent savings in the monthly billing paid by the lodging centers to the CFE, detailed Andrés Muñoz, commercial manager of the Southeast from SolarFuel.

The Parnassus Hotel is the first in Cancun to have a Tesla battery and an entirely renewable energy system generated with solar panels on its roofs that will save costs and consumption during “peak hours.”

The model was presented on Thursday, May 16th at a press conference at the Cancun Hotel Association and the directors Manuel Ricárdez, South-Southeast Commercial Director and Andrés Muñoz, commercial manager, gave the details of this technology, which guarantees a reduction of 35 percent in energy consumption and especially the renewable light service in the tourism industry.

It was reported that in the Mexican Caribbean, only five percent of hotel rooms use renewable energy and depend on the energy supply supplied by the Federal Electricity Commission; however, there is increasing interest in this type of conversion because of the benefits it offers not only to the reduction of environmental impact emitters but also to a question of savings in costs for the service.
