Industrial parks in Puebla seek to incorporate more green technology
PUEBLA – The 21 industrial parks in Puebla, together with the National Chamber of the Transformation Industry (Canacintra), proposed adopting clean technologies in all their production phases to reduce their carbon footprint.
According to Arturo Pérez Lugo, president of the organization, this measure will reduce the cost of electricity generation by up to 50%.
"The savings will be in the medium term, in other words, in five years, once more wind or solar plants are established in the entity," he explained.
In this regard, the businessman did not know the progress of the projects of the Energy Agency of the State of Puebla.
"A clean technology investment implies an expense that cannot be made without a two-year planning. It will take time for businessmen to be convinced about sustainability," he added.
He also considered that textile and automotive companies are the ones that have complained the most about the increase in electricity rates.
The president of the green sector of Canacintra said that Puebla represents a niche market in renewable energies, which is of interest to the whole country.
"Foreign companies are turning to the state, due to the need for savings in electricity with the purchase of electricity generated by wind or sun," he said.
He also hoped that the attraction of these investments will bring benefits for SMEs in the green sector. Among the most important ones are the maintenance or sale of products, such as LED lamps.
Finally, he mentioned that wind and solar energy producers interested in operating from the entity must make a presentation on the benefits of the service in terms of prices and return on investment for the industries.
