My Mexican experience with solar

My CFE bills were in the M$500-M$1000 range. Then I had a swimming pool built and one bedroom air conditioned. My CFE bills went up to M$5,000+.

I had solar panels installed and had another bedroom air conditioned. My CFE bills dropped to M$69 for most periods. (It seems that some renters insist on running A/C 24/7. I even had one renter who complained that the A/C wasn’t working properly. They had the bedroom window and door both wide open!)

Twice CFE has messed up on the metering. The meter was not running in reverse while I was feeding the grid. I have had to have CFE correct the meter. (Of course, CFE didn’t credit me for their meter error during those periods.)

I don’t consider solar to be the problem. I do consider the poor quality of the electricity CFE provided and the poor quality of service from CFE to be problems.
