Guatemala and El Salvador Study Hydroelectric Projects on Paz River

Pre-feasibility and feasibility studies will be conducted for the building of two hydroelectric power stations on the Paz river, which borders both countries.

Daniel Choto in his article in Elsalvador.com writes: "The first hydroelectric power station inaugurated with the name “El Jobo,” will have 72 Mega Watts of capacity installed, calculated for 8 daily hours at peak operation, which will imply the generation of 208 GW/h of energy per year. The second project is known as the “Piedra de Toro,” with an installed capacity of 66 MW, calculated for 8 peak operation hours and a generation of energy of 196 GW/h per year."
