Honduras inaugurates first wind power plant amid energy crisis that has prompted frequent power outages

Friday, September 30, 2011


Honduras’ first wind power plant began operations amid an ongoing energy crisis that has prompted frequent power outages across the country.

The state power utility, ENEE, launched the project, which includes 51 towers lining a hill some 25 kilometers south of Tegucigalpa. The project is the first phase of a more expansive push to bring more wind energy to the country.

By the end of the year, the wind farm will be producing a total of 102 megawatts at a cost of $260 million.
