MEXICO CITY – President Enrique Peña Nieto touted a nearly 2,000-MW increase in the installed capacity of Mexico’s electricity system.
He made his remarks at the Manuel Alvarez Moreno thermoelectric complex, which is located in the Pacific port of Manzanillo and has recently seen its power generating capacity boosted by 1,413 MW.
Now with total installed capacity of 2,754 MW, equivalent to the electrical energy demand of the Mexican capital, that complex is the second largest nationwide, Peña Nieto said.
In addition, he said three new electrical plants began operating Wednesday: an internal combustion facility in Baja California Sur, a combined-cycle natural gas plant in Chihuahua and a geothermal plant in Puebla.
