More Renewable Energy

In El Salvador, twelve renewable energy generation projects with a total capacity of 23 MW are preparing to start operations between 2018 and 2020.

The National Energy Council (CNE) reported that the dozen energy generation projects, which will begin operations in the period between 2018, 2019 and 2020, will have the capacity to supply electricity to 771.350 households in the country.

See "Central America: $1.6 billion in Energy Projects" reports that "... two photovoltaic solar energy plants will begin operations in the last months of 2018 and by 2019 nine other projects of the same technology will be added. The first wind farm in El Salvador is expected in 2020."

"... From the 12 projects, seven correspond to generations awarded in two public tenders, for 100 and 170 megawatts (MW), respectively. The other five are part of the second and third stage of Bósforo, an investment by AES El Salvador and the Corporación Multi Inversiones (CMI) which includes the construction of 10 plants with photovoltaic solar technology."
