Mexican Energy Bill Prioritizes State Hydro Power, Minister Says – Bloomberg


Mexico’s government wants to prioritize hydroelectric power supplied by a public utility over privately owned wind and solar generation as the nation restructures its electricity network, Energy Minister Rocio Nahle said Monday. 

The country is seeking to cut private sector participation in electricity generation to 46% from 62%, Nahle said during a press briefing with President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Hydroelectric power will be given priority, she said, followed by other Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) power sources like nuclear and natural gas. Renewable wind and solar power would be near the bottom of the list, beating out only natural gas from the private sector and coal.
