Costa Rica uses renewables for 93 percent of energy

Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Approximately 93 percent of Costa Rica’s electricity is produced using renewable resources. Seventy-six percent of that renewable energy comes specifically from hydroelectric generation.

Regulation governing the Costa Rica Electricity Institute (ICE) states that electricity generation must be based on renewable resources.

Presently, the second most utilized renewable energy is that of geothermal energy, extracted from the slopes of the country’s volcanoes.
