Because it is still unknown how far the electricity reform proposal sent by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to Congress and its effects on the generation of renewable energy will go, large companies have modified their investment plans.
“What we have done is slow down investment in solar panels until we see how the approval of the electricity reform evolves. We hope that the generation of energy with solar panels is not affected ”, said the director of administration and finance of La Comer, Rogelio Garza.
In a conference with analysts, the executive said that if the contracts are abolished, companies like La Comer would have to increase spending by 15-20% of their energy budget. “Since last year, the government put a lot of pressure on this type of alternative energy, since then we have changed our focus on clean energy such as solar panels.
For his part, Chedraui explained that he expects marginal effects on his costs as long as the effects of the reform are known. “We believe that we will be able to sustain it even after the reform, if that changes we will make numbers of that, and surely we will be affected with marginal effects of two to three basis points in the cost of energy”, explained the general director of Chedraui, Antonio Chedraui Eguía .
