Costa Rica to build 631 megawatts hydroelectric plant
The Costa Rica Institute of Electricity will start to construct the biggest hydroelectric plant in Central America at the end of next year.
Monday, December 22, 2008
The project called El Diquis will be located between Buenos Aires, Osa, and Pérez Zeledón.
Complaints by indigenous natives from the El Diquís area are jeopardizing the project.
A story that has now been going on for twenty years could be resumed with the adoption of a legal framework to be used to consult with the natives living in the area where the 650 MW plant would be built.
The Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) must expropriate 1.500 lots to build hydroelectric power plant El Diquis in the south of the country.
The ICE has presented to Panamanian investors plans to build a dam on the river Reventazón and on the Diquis .
