Gas Plants in Puerto La Union Accepted
The new mayor will maintain the ban on power plants using coal or bunker fuel, but accepted those running on clean energy.
Thursday, May 17, 2012
The new mayor of the municipality of La Union, Ezequiel Milla, has amended a decree prohibiting the installation of power plants that used coal, liquefied natural gas or any derivation of hydrocarbons as fuel, which was not conducive to investment in the city.
The Municipality of La Union will only allow the installation of plants generating renewable energy, and will definitely prohibit power plants based on coal and bunker fuel.
The concept is part of the "Master Plan for the development of renewable energies" which sets out a strategy in power generation for the next 15years.
In 2011 Costa Rica increased its use of fossil fuels by 24% in order to meet the demand for energy.
The crisis is not stopping energy projects. Nicaragua is among the countries that are growing the most in wind energy generation capacity.
