Nicaragua Plans 770 Megawatts in Renewable Projects, EFE Says

Sept. 19 (Bloomberg) — Nicaragua plans $4 billion of
public and private-sector investment in renewable energy
projects over the next 15 years to add 770 megawatts, Spanish
news agency EFE reported.

The plan includes 300 megawatts of wind energy, 100
megawatts of geothermal, 100 megawatts of solar and 270
megawatts from two hydroelectric projects, EFE said, citing
Mining and Energy Minister Emilio Rappaccioli in a Canal 4 TV

More than 70 percent of Nicaragua’s energy generation comes
from non-renewable sources, such as thermoelectric plants,
according to the ministry’s website.
