As a consequence of the measures ordered by Mexico’s General Health Council and Ministry of Health to prevent and combat the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19, on April 9, 2020, the National Energy Control Center (“CENACE”) published in the Federal Official Gazette a resolution (“Resolution”) amending the “Resolution” that orders the suspension of the deadlines and terms of the acts and proceedings carried out before CENACE, from March 26, 2020 until Sunday, April 19, 2020” (the “Original Resolution”) .

The Resolution extends the suspension period for requests and applications filed to CENACE, including those filed through the System for Attention to Interconnection and Connection Requests (Sistema de Atención de Solicitudes de Interconexión y Conexión), until April 30, 2020. Notwithstanding the foregoing, considering that May 1 to 3, 2020 are deemed as public holidays in Mexico: (i) the terms and deadlines of the proceedings handled by CENACE will be suspended until May 3, 2020 and will resume on May 4, 2020; (ii) the terms for CENACE or applicants that expire during the suspension period will be extended and resumed on May 4, 2020; and (iii) the requests and applications submitted to CENACE during the suspension period will be deemed as filed on May 4, 2020 (and consequently, the term for their resolution will commence as of such date). The rest of the terms and conditions set forth in the Original Resolution will continue to have legal effect as establish therein.
