Comisión Federal de Electricidad Key Developments

CFE Reports Earnings Results for the First Half of 2016

CFE reported earnings results for the first half of 2016. The company posted a MXN 107 billion (USD 5.6 billion) net profit, in sharp contrast to the MXN 35.6 billion loss it reported during the same period last year. The result was mainly due to a renegotiation of a work contract with its trade union (SUTERM) and workers, which concluded in May, reducing the company's liabilities by around MXN 160 billion which is reflected in its healthy bottom line. The firm's labor liabilities could therefore eventually shrink by around MXN 320 billion, more than 50% of the total. The company revenue was MXN 154 billion, compared with MXN 148 billion in first half of 2015.

CFE Opens Solar Plant, Advances Baja Peninsula Electrification

CFE has opened a 342kWh capacity, 468-panel solar plant in Muleg, in Baja California Sur state, the first of 40 such plants designed to bring electrification to areas on the peninsula that have remained off-grid until now. The Muleg plant will supply electricity to local households, schools and a hospital in the village of Luis Echeverría, for which new distribution infrastructure has been put in place. The village relies on gas for refrigeration and has to ship in ice from neighboring towns, while clothes are ironed by heating an iron in an open fire. The town has no mobile telephone signal and the only telephone connection will depend on electricity supplied by the new solar plant and the only WiFi installation will be the one used to monitor the plant, it added. The Baja California peninsula has a separate grid to the rest of Mexico. The project to bring electrification to the peninsula's off-grid areas is being coordinated by the energy ministry (Sener) with support from the World Bank, and similar plants will be built in other areas of Baja California Sur to supply residents with electric power. The new solar plant has a 48-hour backup battery, allowing it to supply electricity to the community even when there is no sunlight. During the inauguration of the plant, residents were asked to use no more than two domestic appliances at any one time, and to make rational use of the electricity.
