The Mexican Maquiladora and Export Industry Association in Tijuana (INDEX), affirms that there are ongoing panel discussion sessions with members and representatives of this sector in general, to find out how much money must be invested in clean energies.
Luis Manuel Hernandez, INDEX President, weighed in that enterprises are legally bound to use this type of energy, at least 5% must be energy which generates little pollution. This will trigger considerable investment from maquilas, depending on their specialty, each factory will select its most suitable technologies. Mr. Hernandez assured that a 100% usage of energies such as solar, and gas, which is questionable from his point of view, can be accomplished in Baja California, besides having the opportunity to take advantage of wind power.
