From the second to the fifth year, 60 MW was awarded to the La Union and San Diego sugar mills. Another 50 MW were awarded to the Inde, 8 MW to Tecnoguat and 2 MW to Alternativa de Energía Renovable.

Carlos Rodas, planning manager of Empresa Eléctrica de Guatemala, S.A. (EEGSA), told Prensalibre.com that "... There were 14 bidders in the competition, of which after 39 rounds of reverse auctions (those offering the lowest price are awarded) eight were awarded at an average price of US$73 per megawatt (MW)."

For Rhodes, it is striking that "... the attention was drawn to the fact that natural gas generation did not participate. In Guatemala, the company City Petén in La Libertad, Petén extracts natural gas after discovering a deposit of this resource when it was looking for oil."
