Update Mar 01, 2013
The lower house of the Mexican government has approved amendments to the country’s renewable energy bill aimed at promoting rooftop PV at public schools, with the added option to sell surplus energy to the rest of the municipality.
The reform has been submitted to the Mexican Senate for approval. Details on how rooftop PV will be implemented into the reform were not disclosed.
The Mexican renewable energy bill calls for a 30% reduction in emission growth by 2020, and 50% by 2050 with 35% of energy to come from renewable sources by 2024.
Currently, the country offers tax incentives for solar projects and a form of net metering as well as the possibility of long-term power purchase deals agreements with the CFE.
