Abstract or Summary
  • This research paper is an analysis of the electric energy industry in Mexico since its inception in 1879. The research is based entirely on library sources plus documents secured from the Federal Electricity Commission of Mexico. Only minimal documentary evidence is available in English, consequently the Oregon State University library has limited resources. The Director General of the Mexican electricity commission however, was generous in providing materials, especially annual reports, which provided basic data. After perusing library sources, many reports and references, the resulting evidence and data was condensed to a concise account of the development of the electric energy industry. The analysis examines government and private commitments and endeavors to relate them to the politico-socio-economic situation of Mexico. Although the recent realities of the electric energy industry are most pertinent to this research, the present cannot be fully comprehended without a review of the past and its political environment. Thus, three development stages are recognized. 1. The early development stage from 1879 to 1932. 2. The post revolution stage from 1933 to 1959 highlighted by the federalization of the electric industry and the birth of the Federal Electricity Commission. 3. The modern stage from 1960 to the present corresponding with nationalization of the electric industry and rapid expansion.
