A statement from the Presidency of Honduras reads:

Government signs three agreements for wind power generation
Thursday, December 20, 2012

The agreements are with the companies Vientos de Electrotecnia, Parque Eólico de San Marcos; Proyecto Eólico Chinchayote and the expansion of Cerro de Hula, Globeleq Mesoamérica.

President Porfirio Lobo Sosa, signed on Thursday in the Lenca hall at the Presidential House, three agreements for generating energy from wind power, with wind farms in San Marcos and Chinchayote in the municipality of San Marcos de Colon, Choluteca and extension of the Cerro de Hula project, between Santa Ana and San Buenaventura, Francisco Morazán.

The company Vientos de Electrotecnia will be responsible for running the wind farm in San Marcos with the installation of 23 turbines, which will generate 49 megawatts, with a total investment of $130 million.

The Chinchayote Wind Project is being run by the company Vientos de San Marcos, generating 45 MW at a cost of $170 million.

During the construction of the two mega projects, in 2013, these investments are expected to exceed $300 million, which will bring significant savings to the National Electricity Company (ENEE), which will acquire power from these two companies at a price of approximately 14.8 cents per kilowatt hour.

With domestic investment by the two firms who are part of the Terra Group, the Government will make savings of at least $70 million, backing this clean energy generation.
