This was stated in a report by the National Electricity Company (ENEE), which also indicated that excess production is exported to the Regional Energy Market (MER), which takes place in low demand hours, between 9 pm and 10 am.
Congress has approved the operating contract for the installation of the hydroelectricity station Cuyamel, in the department of Cortés.
Of the 80 hydroelectric projects approved four years ago by the Honduran Congress only four are in operation and seven others are just starting to be built.
There are dozens of large and small power generation projects in various stages of implementation that run parallel with the growth of energy demand.
The plant launched by Ingenio Magdalena in Retalhuleu has the capacity to generate up to 62 MW of energy from biomass and coal.
