Panamanian electric companies seek energy to supply high demand

Yesterday electricity distributors, Elektra Noreste y Edemet-Edechi, went looking to buy energy to guarantee the supply for the 2012 - 2022 period.

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

The purchase, which is medium and long term, is from existing generating companies or new electric generation projects, and will be for 205 megawatts (MW) for 2012 and 350 MW from 2013 to 2022 at the best prices offered in the generation market.

The importance of these competitive international moves is that 74% total cost of energy paid by consumers is greatly determined by this.

16 companies made 18 proposals for the purchase, nine of which were for hydroelectric plants, 2 for carbon companies and 5 for bunkers.
