PA energy market expert, Jim Heidell, is quoted in S&P Global Platts regarding expectations from Mexico's Solar Energy Association (ANES) that after six years of triple-digit growth rates, the growth of rooftop solar in Mexico will slow in 2017.
Commenting on this topic, Jim states: “Based on the US' DG growth, a doubling of systems is reasonable when the penetration rate is so low.”
Jim continues: “For ANES' projection to materialize most of the growth would have to come from commercial customers. However, this will be challenging. High demand charges on non-residential rates will be a barrier to penetration. Mainly commercial customers trying to be "green" will install rooftop solar.”
Jim concludes: “On a total basis, CFE could lose between 4 to 5% of its total revenue, and that hurts.”
