Costa Rica power is mainly from renewables

Monday, April 18, 2016

Despite severe drought conditions across most of the country, 97 percent of electricity generated during the first three months of this year came from renewable sources, the state-run Costa Rican Electricity Institute reported.

Executive president Carlos Manuel Obregón said the figure is remarkable considering it was achieved during the country’s dry season and following a rainy season marked by a high precipitation deficit.
