Friday, June 20, 2008
The government will consider offers until July 31, according to a press release on the Energy Ministry's web site.
The volcanic mountain range of los Maribios could potentially generate more than 1,500 megawatts for the country.
As part of the Geothermal Energy Master Plan a delegation of experts will be arriving from the volcanic country where 100% of the energy matrix is renewable.
At the end of the month the San Jacinto-Tizate geothermal station will generate 36 megawatts which will be added to the national grid.
Guatemala has the potential to generate 1,000 megawatts, of which it currently only uses 3.6%.
