    Businesses dedicated to the sale of food indicate that people no longer reach where their food is offered, so they asked for a flat floor.

    We contacted Armando Gómez, country manager from X-Elio Mexico, who denied all accusations: “We categorically deny the theory about our alleged involvement in a method whose technical feasibility is not founded and which also goes against our business principles—to generate renewable energy with the intention of protecting the environment. Under no circumstances do we use our own or contracted aircraft to carry out operations, maintenance, or any other activity related to our photovoltaic generation plants. We found the argument absurd, and we reinforced our commitment to the communities surrounding our plants. X-ELIO always maintains objectives of the highest priority of social responsibility.”
