Merida CFE’s “Nachi Cocom” photovoltaic plant to begin operations in July

In one month, the first phase of the “Nachi Cocom” photovoltaic plant of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) is expected to begin operations, which will be one of the main sources of electricity supply for the Ie-Tram public transportation network in Mérida, reported the Undersecretary of Energy, Juan Carlos Vega Milke.

It is expected that the clean energy generators will power not only 32 units of the state capital’s public transportation electrical subsystem but also the new vehicles that will be used for night routes – which have not yet arrived. They will also “charge” the batteries of modern buses that will be used for foreign routes, which the state government has not yet officially reported.

The federal government invested 12 million US dollars in this plant

Vega Millke recalled that the federal government invested 12 million US dollars, to build this plant, which will produce 100 percent renewable energy. The works began two years ago, after a direct request to the general director of the CFE, Manuel Bartlett Díaz.

This work will impact a lower cost of the Ie-Tram fare. “Photovoltaic energy is cheaper than energy from fossil sources, that is reflected in the cost of the ticket, otherwise the rate would be more expensive,” he said. He explained that it will be used exclusively for the 32 buses to load at night, since during the day they will give the routes and the night routes will load during the day so that they work at night.

On the other hand, Vega Milke stated that thanks to the two plants that are being built in Mérida and Valladolid, there will be more energy available in Yucatán, which will carry out their first ignitions between July and September of this year; first the Mérida turbine, which must start commercial operation between November and December, and then the two Valladolid turbines, which will operate between January and February 2025.
