Honduras: 130 million dollars available to produce wind energy

The Mesoamerica Energy Company will propose to the National Electrical Energy Company construction of a wind park valued at 130 million dollars (2.4 billion lempiras) that's capable of generating 60 megawatts.

Friday, May 2, 2008

The initiative comes from the local and regional private sector. A similar project is operating in Costa Rica and another is under construction in Nicaragua.
The Honduras 2000 wind project will be located on Hula Hill, Santa Ana, Francisco Morazán. It will have capacity to generate almost as much energy as one of the four turbines of the hydroelectric project El Cajon.
