Thursday, December 8, 2011

US-based power company AES, which provides 80 percent of the electricity distribution in El Salvador, is looking for new business opportunities there.

AES is aiming to set up an electricity storage facility based on lithium batteries.

The service will be provided to generators that can use all of their capacity without having to safeguard reserves. Investment is likely to cost some $24 million for the first phase of the project.
