Energy Law urgently need in Costa Rica

The business sector is pressing for a law that allows for the concession of water to private firms to build hydroelectric dams to be approved.

Friday, September 26, 2008

The Costa Rican Union of Chambers and Association of Private Companies (UCCAEP) stated in a release that it is necessary for "private companies to be able to start meeting the energy needs of the country, thereby avoiding rationing and huge increases" in electricity rates.
The discontentment of the business community is in response to the request made last Friday by the ICE, the state monopoly of electricity, for an increase of up to 46% in electric rates, which the UCCAEP believes is "excessive" at this time.
