Mexico is aiming to switch to clean energy with wind and solar to make up more than one-third of its electricity sources. (CGTN America)

A solar energy company estimates that more than 160,000 Mexican homes are now powered by the sun, a figure that can only grow as installation costs continue to drop.

Not only is installing a household solar array getting cheaper, but homes paying the high-consumption domestic rate (tarifa DAC) can enjoy monthly savings of up to 95%, said the Mexican firm Enlight.

Company spokesman Juan Pablo Robert said solar energy has become the most competitive in the Mexican electricity market as a result of long-term energy policies implemented by the federal government.

Installation costs have plunged 70% since 2010, meaning solar energy has increasingly become the best option for homes and businesses.

Robert said that far from a luxury, solar energy is now a necessity for those paying the Federal Electricity Commission’s DAC rate.

He quoted official estimates that at least 160,000 households in the country use solar power, a number expected to grow by 29% this year.
