I thought you were a fan of AMLO, Rob...hard to believe...

Hard to believe you fall for hit pieces that exaggerate, twist and distort the federal government's policy and apparently treats the president as if he operates by decree.

"But an opening of the industry in 2013 encouraged a spate of new investment – much of it in renewables. Mexico also introduced clean energy auctions, which “set record prices for how low developers were bidding to put renewables into the mix”, Martin said."

This is the giveaway that this article is apparently paid for by big oil and people hurt by putting an end to the corrupt "Reforma Energética" which was a major scandal orchestrated by corrupt politicians and businesses like Odebrecht. The auctions were for FRACKING and OIL DRILLING concessions, not "renewables" or "clean energy" by any stretch of the imagination. I saw this same article in another newspaper the other day and did my homework.

Not a fan of any politician. Just tired of the lies and political games. AMLO is going after corruptos and influyentes, and an endless stream of hit pieces keep coming out in English language media. He's not perfect. I don't agree with all his policies. But if you speak Spanish I encourage you to listen to his morning briefings.
