As an example, communard assemblies from the San Dionisio and San Mateo del Mar municipalities have accused the ejidal president and the mayors of having accepted bribes made by firms to strengthen ties between the two forces, without any concern for the wishes of the community.
Since the mids, the development of wind-energy projects in the region of the Tehuantepec Isthmus has been resulting in different sorts of impacts.
Among the megaprojects in question, there are explicit references to wind-energy ones. Si continua navegando, consideramos que acepta su uso.

Approximately MW of private wind autogeneration capacity were erected in Oaxaca at three wind farms duringto start commercial operation during They often have been signed under the pressure of companies and include abusive implications for landowners in terms of the modification or cancellation of said contracts. During the first temporada abierta, an agreement was signed between the CFE and four private companies, committing the CFE to build km of transmission lines from the La Ventosa project site in Oaxaca to connect it to the national grid.
Among the cultural impacts, the above situation creates is the imposing of different culture values, being directed at the indigenous peoples of the region. However the bid process was declared to have failed by CFE and is expected to be re-bid during Overall, it is expected that up to MW of wind capacity will be installed and become operational during the next several years under both the IPP MW and autogeneration schemes MWall located in Oaxaca.

Beyond this, acts of criminalization, death threats, and attacks constitute other forms of the most significant political impacts. As an example, according to Bettina Cruz, on 21 March it was shown in the European Parliament that in not one of the wind-energy projects of the Isthmus had there been consultations carried out with affected peoples, nor had any possibility been made so that local peoples could participate in the design of the development plans to which they would be subjected.
This is a process which is more, within the commercialist logic that conflicts with concepts of public service, the destination of the major part of the energy which is generated in wind-energy parks is not for public but instead private uses. Both projects are scheduled to be completed between and The divisions in communities and the degradation of the social fabric represent two of the principal social impacts confronted by the populations that are affected.
This model aims at identifying the total transmission capacity that private generators are willing to reserve so that the CFE can justify construction of new lines for renewable energy.
Mexico has set a goal of having renewable power sources generate 25 percent of its electricity by Emprendamos ahora la tarea de construir desde abajo y con la fuerza de las comunidades una propuesta propia: This is done without regard solica the desires of local peoples, the impacts and affects these can cause, and what the benefit and use is expected to be from this generated energy: There are also other market barriers that have retarded wind development, including most recently the adverse effect of the global financial crisis.
Under the outsiders belief system, there is imposed a notion of decision-making processes based on majorities, which differs from the traditional emphasis on consensus-based decision-making processes.

For example, the Digna Ochoa Center for Human Rights from the coastal region of Chiapas warns of the lack of information and clarity of the contracts that have been agreed to.
According to data from the World Bank, in only one year, the wind-energy park La Venta II provoked the death of some animals principally birds and bats after they collided with the blades of the 98 wind-energy turbines located in the park.
The rent contracts for land signed by firms and the commitments they have attained with respect to local populations of the zones in which the wind-energy plants are erected form yet another source of denunciation and conflictivity.
There are presently 15 wind-energy parks in operation with 13 more in different stages of planning and development. La Venta II The national energy commission CRE was put in charge of issuing administrative norms and methodologies to enable the use of renewable energy and to adapt the electricity dispatch provisions to take into account the technical requirements of renewables.
The violation and destruction of spaces held by indigenous groups to be sacred or significant, such as the example of the Tileme Island in Barra de Santa Teresa, represents yet another type of cultural impact of these projects.
There is also the possibility to produce electricity for export to another country, which in practice means the US. In some cases there has been denounced the sale and ceding of communal and ejidal lands jointly owned lands through force and without the consent of the general assemblies of communards and ejidatarios. The law aims to promote the use of renewable energy in Mexico and to take best advantage of international mechanisms such as the CDM.

The wind energy pipeline Approximately MW of private wind autogeneration capacity were erected in Oaxaca at three wind farms duringto start commercial operation during This has laid an important foundation for a evntosa significant private sector led development of wind energy in the future. The data indicates that close to two-thirds of the wind-energy parks are controlled by foreign interests.
In the state of Oaxaca there are currently wind-energy parks operating. This has favoured the development of conventional energy sources in the past, as well as some large hydro and geothermal projects, all exclusively by CFE. The bill put the Energy Ministry SENER in charge of drafting a renewable energy programme, and it called for the development of a national strategy for the sustainable use of energy.
However, questions related to the impacts and effects that projects dedicated to the development of such types of energy have on local people and the environment itself are not often taken into consideration. Bettina Cruz, representative of the Assembly of Indigenous Peoples of the Tehuantepec Isthmus in Defense of Land and Territory APIITDTThas indicated that the majority of the wind-energy projects, beyond being owned by private capital, are destined to provide energy to other private corporations, not to the public network and hence the citizenry.
Inthe Mexican Power Sector law was amended to open the door for some private sector participation, creating limited possibilities for self-suppliers, cogeneration and independent power producers to generate and supply power to the national grid.
Wind-energy projects such as that of Barra de Santa Teresa or Bii Hioxho, located in the aquiferous zone of the Superior Laguna, also gravely threaten the flora and fauna of the mangrove ecosystem found in this area which, beyond providing life to a large number of aquatic and bird species, also represents the basis of the productive and nutritional system of fishing communities who live around the Laguna.
Under the Independent Power Producer IPP scheme, private producers with plants over 30 MW must sell their power to the CFE through long-term power purchase agreements PPAwhich are awarded through competitive bidding procedures based on the lowest average generation price.
