Costa Rica may seed clouds to save electricity bills

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Costa Rica may employ cloud seeding in the coming months in the hope of avoiding a summertime increase in electric bills.

Cloud seeding is a form of weather modification used to artificially induce rain.

Cloud seeding is employed by flying an aircraft through target cloud systems, releasing and igniting flares containing silver iodide as the aircraft flies through the inflow of clouds.
