My system worked before the meter was installed. I didn't build credit for the night  but  consumed zero during the  day. 

As to the pole..... Never herd of that. You don't change the  cables from the street to the meter. Have your solar company help you with CFE  something is not right. 

He could have new construction on the property that required a new pole due to distance.  I saw this once in Joco with a casita addition.

Deposit to bank account sounds like  scam, any payments should be made directly at an office with official receipt

Whatever will be the future of solar which I believe will be stellar performance and great for the planet. However the current losers such as CFE here in Mexico and elsewhere, will find a way to get g

As mentioned in the other newer thread on this, the solar credit system continues and should be shown back on the bills by the end of this year. In addition, we're now hearing that net-metering u

Hi everybody! I just had ten solar panels installed. I paid the solar company, and they said it would be 2-3 weeks before CFE would install the bi-directional meter. During this time, the system just sits and cannot be turned on. A week later, I got an email from CFE saying that I needed to deposit $16,800 MX to a bank account to pay for a new pole and wiring. Has anybody else had this happen? I am near Chapala, in San Antonio Tlayacapan. I appreciate any advice or insight this group can offer me. 🙂

 

More info is needed here to answer this - did you have a CFE connection before the solar?    

Was the service  110 V 1 phase (fase), or 220 V, 2 phase?    Did that need to change?

What is the tarifa?   Is the transformer public or private?

Your solar provider should be able to assist you with this; FYI have never seen or heard of this, and you should fully explore it before paying anything.

Agree with Spencer on the payment also - CFE does not ask for payments to go to a bank account.   Who did the email really come from, and what is the banking info they gave you?

I know this is an old topic but I just came back from Europe and most countries are backtracking on solar credits, the rules are changing now that you are hooked to solar energy and government run energy companies which is the case in most countries, will get a piece of the action through fees or whatever they decide to get you pay for your privilege to use solar energy.

Sounds familiar??

It's called capitalism... even when it does not meet the true definition of that word. All  companies, energy or not, are in the business to make money for the "stockholder". They say they are just in the business to 'serve the people' but that's just their public relations mantra. "They" will continue to try and chip away and chip away at anything that deters them from making more money or getting more taxes thru fees.

As an example, I just renewed my car plates NOB. In addition to the $81 fee to do that, there were 17 OTHER FEES TOTALING $40.37 THAT MY STATE HAS ADDED OVER THE YEARS, from as little as $0.10 to $23.00!  "Clerk Hire Fee, Peace Officer Standardized Training Fee, Material Fee... $0.17 for the little year-Tab they give you to put on your plate!
