Peninsular CFE Announces New Lower Residential Energy Costs for Merida, Yucatan


October 17, 2017
The Diario de Yucatan just announced that our “Peninsular” office of CFE has changed Merida & its comisarios from the more expensive Tarifa Zone C, down to the cheaper Tarifa Zone D.

Sorry … This does not apply to the beach … but, since many of you have Merida homes … or are thinking about moving to Merida:

What triggered the change?
Merida experienced three consecutive years of summer months with temperatures over 31º C trigger the change from “C” to “D”.

What are the details of the change?
Zone C residential homes CURRENTLY get 900 kWh of deeply-discounted** SUMMER power. Zone D residential homes get 1500 kWh of deeply~discounted** SUMMER months power.  … Summer = April – Sept for CFE in Yucatan.

What does this mean for our power bills?
This means summer bimonthly ~additional~ NEW savings** of about $1050 pesos per bill for people using Excedente energy levels, (but not for DAC customers). On a whole-summer basis, we get $3,150 pesos of additional NEW savings** for the whole summer for Merida’s Excedente-level residential power users.

The new ~total~ summer Government Subsidy savings** for Meridadano households total to $8,600 pesos per summer. ~

**The deep discounts are government subsidies – gifts to us.

Specifically:
“La División Peninsular de la Comisión Federal de Electricidad confirmó la reclasificación de la tarifa eléctrica en Mérida y sus comisarías. Con este cambio el municipio pasará de la categoríaIC a la ID, más barata. Esto significaría ahorros de hasta mil pesos entre los usuarios que consumen al bimestre 1,150 watts en promedio. ”

“La reducción se logró gracias a que el Ejército y la Conagua entregaron las mediciones de temperatura, en las que se demuestran que durante los meses de verano de tres años consecutivos, la temperatura promedio de Mérida rebasó los 31 grados, por eso se pudo cambiar la tarifa”,
