Project Description

According to FMO website, the project aims to fund the construction and operation of a 31.5MW wind farm in Guatemala. It will provide renewable energy capacity to a country with a high participation on fossil fuel-based energy and coal. The project will provide clean energy to the Guatemalan grid which currently contains very little non-conventional renewable energy. The Project will contribute to a more diversified and stable supply of electricity (and reduce fossil fuel dependency) at a sustainable price and provide economic growth through job creation and other multiplier effects.
