El Salvador announces new investment fund in renewable energy

Thursday, June 12, 2008


CEL president Nicolás Salume says the project could bring in 300 million dollars by year-end, although the financial model is still being developed.
"It (the fund) will be created and will permanently provide private and public investment funds," he said.
The first outlines of the renewable energy project call for a goal of generating 1,800 gigawatts over 12 months during the next five years -about 15 percent of power generated nationally.
