El Salvador: Upcoming Tender for Electricity Works for $10 million

The state power company has presented a major expansion and improvement plan for transmission towers and high voltage substations and intends to start the tender process in the first weeks of 2015.

Friday, November 14, 2014

The Transmission Company of El Salvador (Etesa) plans to implement this project within 5 to 10 years and will fund it by adding charges on electricity bills for consumers. However, "... the project needs to be thoroughly reviewed in order to determine if it meets all the necessary conditions. "

The electricity manager at the General Superintendency for Electricity and Telecommunications, Gilberto Cruz told Elsalvador.com that "... The expansion plans are in response to energy demand and are also consistent with power generation projects that are being opened up in the country. Although this project is for five years, Empresa Transmisora de El Salvador is already making preparations. "

'... According to Article 69 of the General Law of Electricity, the company is required to submit a five-year expansion plan to strengthen the transmission network, because it is their responsibility to have proper equipment to ensure that energy reaches homes across the country. "
