Preferential Tariffs for Charging Electric Vehicles

Last updated: 18 January 2023

The Federal Commission of Electricity (CFE) has been promoting the use of electric vehicles (EV) in Mexico by offering preferential electricity tariffs when exclusive meters for EV charging are installed in the household sector.


The electricity tariff for the household sector in Mexico corresponds to level 1 (level 2 is mostly considered for the commercial sector), and it has a cap on the monthly consumption. If the limit is exceeded over a year-long, the user then is deemed as a High Domestic Consumer (DAC) with higher electricity tariffs. To prevent this, CFE provides a free-of-charge installation of an exclusive meter for EV charging, which allows a higher consumption at level 1 electricity tariffs (without increasing to DAC)


The measure allows electricity cost savings of roughly 40% for domestic users.
