The energy park in Guazapa is the last of the 10 that were projected, so the power plants together have an installed capacity of 100 MW of clean energy, which is transferred to the network managed by AES Soluciones.

Bernerd Da Santos, executive vice president of AES Corporation, told that "... Rather than contributing to the quality of the sites where the plant is located, with a more reliable service and cheaper prices, what 'is sought is the replacement of fossil fuels that are much more expensive than renewable energy."

Da Santos added that "... Bosphorus brings to El Salvador lower generation costs, renewable energy, a substitution and contribution to the reduction of carbon emissions, and brings reliability to localities, of which it has been made to measure in the distribution of energy."
