Social impact actions in Oaxaca

Our energy encourages development in Oaxaca

At Iberdrola México we aim to become a benchmark in the energy sector with competitive and environmentally friendly solutions tailored to our customers’ needs, which will mainly allow us to have a positive impact on Mexican communities. Oaxaca is an example of how we have worked hand in hand with both society and government.

The wind in the south and southeast of Mexico has brought life to our wind turbines for more than 10 years, and we want to give that energy back to the communities by fostering their development. Bearing this in mind, we have worked on a comprehensive strategy to benefit people living in the vicinity of our farms, as well as in other regions in Oaxaca.
