CFE’s COVID19 Emergency Electricity Rate Changes

April 19, 2020

Per an April 17’th CFE & Federal Govt. of Mexico announcement:

Se estima necesario que durante el período que se mantenga vigente la declaratoria de emergencia sanitaria por causa de fuerza mayor genera por el virus SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19), no se considere el consumo de energía eléctrica realizado por los usuarios del servicio doméstico […] así como permitir la permanencia de dichos usuarios en una tarifa de bajo consumo (1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E y 1F)”, establece el Acuerdo.

During this period of the declared National health emergency …  because of the force majeure conditions, caused by the SARS-CoV2 virus (COVID-19) …  Domestic home-owner electricity high consumption (DAC) usages will not be “charged”  for their excessively high (DAC) consumptions.  […] There will also be a “stay”  (stoppage)   – holding-maintenance-stabilization  of high-energy user’s rates,  keeping them in the low consumption rate categories (1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D , 1E and 1F)”, per the formal Agreement between CFE and the Gobierno de Mexico.

Con ello, los usuarios domésticos no pasarán a la tarifa de Servicio Doméstico de Alto Consumo (DAC) aunque rebasen el límite de consumo mínimo, es decir, que durante el periodo indicado, se les se les continuarán aplicando las tarifas 1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E y 1F, según corresponda.

This will prevent domestic users from going to the Domestic High Consumption Service (DAC) rate even if they exceed the minimum consumption limit, i.e. that during the period indicated, they will continue to be subject to rates 1, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E and 1F, as applicable. “

“El acuerdo especificó que durante el periodo “no se podrán realizar reclasificaciones a la tarifa DAC a los usuarios de servicio doméstico de energía eléctrica”.

La CFE no cobrará más a usuarios que excedan su consumo de luz durante el aislamiento por COVID-19

Through the agreement published in the evening version of the Official Gazette of the Federation (DOF), the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) determined that the measure will be effective between March 30, 2020 and up to seven calendar days after end the coronavirus emergency. “

= = = = = =
In simple language: Mary Maas explains (from FB):
“The notice is for the entire country (published in the official record), and is in effect from March 30 until six days after the emergency state is lifted. It says that CFE will not reclassify users who are in the domestic use tarifs 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, and 1E ( which inclues Yucatan) from their domestic tariff to the domestic high consumption (DAC) tarif based on their usage during the emergency.”

Yet one more time … Mary Maas’s good addition  …   ~ ROCKS THE HOUSE ~

¡ Mil Gracias !
