Puerto Morelos, Q.R. – A new electric substation has been added to the region, providing an improved supply of electricity for Riviera Maya.
The substation is located within the municipality of Puerto Morelos and will benefit more than 100,000 residents as well as hotels and other tourist establishments.
The station was unveiled during the recent visit of President Enrique Peña Nieto. The opening ceremony was also attended by state governor Carlos Joaquín González and Puerto Morelos mayor, Laura Fernandez Piña.
The mayor noted that the need for a substation arose due to the demand for electric energy service as the region continues to expand.
Laura Fernandez thanked the governor of Quintana Roo for promoting the development of the youngest municipality in Mexico and congratulated the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and its director, Francisco de la Parra, for being allies of Puerto Morelos.
“We are delighted to see this work of the CFE in the Mexican Caribbean, which is the main tourist destination in Mexico and Latin America,” she said.
The electric substation was an investment of $65.7 million and will benefit Puerto Morelos, Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Riviera Maya and Cozumel.
