Chetumal, Q.R. — Domestic electricity usage in the southern portion of the state has been adjusted in three communities by the Federal Electricity Commission after requests from the state governor.
The usage adjustment is the result of efforts of state governor Carlos Joaquín, who, since the beginning of the year, requested a new study be conducted for that region. After the study, the Basic Supplies Directorate of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) agreed to readjust the domestic usage tariff for three communities in the southern state.
“This week, we have been officially notified of the positive result,” said the secretary of Economic Development, Rosa Elena Lozano Vázquez.
The Federal Electricity Commission reports the communities of Lázaro Cárdenas in Bacalar and Mahahual and Álvaro Obregón in Othón P. Blanco will have their domestic usage tariff moved from 1B to 1C, which will reduce the cost of monthly electricity rates.
With tariffs at 1B, the consumption range is up to 400 kilowatts before CFE charges a surplus. The 1C tariff, on the other hand, has a wider consumption range, allowing up to 850 kilowatts of usage per month before a surplus is applied.
