Costa Rica seeks to boost electric cars

Friday, February 19, 2016

Costa Rica ended 2015 with an impressive 98 percent of its electricity generated from renewable sources. But the country is still highly dependent on fossil fuel consumption for transportation.

Now the Legislative Assembly is evaluating a plan to boost the use of electric and hybrid cars that could start as soon as this year, according to the National Power and Light Company, one of the public agencies involved in the proposal.
