Public-private partnership boosts clean energy through geothermal power in Nicaragua

Friday, December 30, 2011

Nicaragua has added 36 megawatts of clean, renewable electricity to its national electricity grid. Reno, Nevada’s Ram Power announced on Dec. 22 that it successfully synchronized electricity generation for its Phase I expansion at the San Jacinto-Tizate geothermal energy field.

Another 36 megawatts is scheduled to come on-line in late 2012 or early 2013, according to project development plans.

Taken together, Phase I and Phase II are expected to save Nicaragua as much as $80 million annually in energy costs.
