In addition, in 2021, the DCIPI-CFE concluded a project for substations and transmission lines, under the Pidiregas scheme.

The total length of the lines was 122.8 circuit kilometers (km-C). These works also added 500 MVA and 11 feeders and represent a contract investment of 31.0 million dollars.

Likewise, in the Budgetary Public Works (OPP) modality, corresponding to contracts with CFE Transmission, CFE Distribution, CFE Generation, CFE Supplier of Services and Permit Holders, at the end of 2021, 478 substation and line works were completed.

The total length of the lines was 579.6 circuit kilometers (km-C). These works also added 250.0 MVA, 34.7 megavolt amperes reactive (MVAr) and 67 feeders and total a contract investment of 79.7 million dollars.

The CFE was created in 1937 by presidential decree and later converted by the Congress of the Union in 1949 into a decentralized public agency of the federal government.

As part of the energy reform, the CFE was converted into a productive State company in October 2014, giving it greater technical, operational and budgetary autonomy to fulfill its purpose of creating economic value for the Mexican State.

The CFE had a net loss of 106,260 million pesos in 2021, an increase of 24% over 2020.
