Tejona Wind Power

Project Summary

The project will consist of installing a sufficient number of wind turbines (between 40-100 units) to generate 20 MW at Tejona, near Lake Arenal. In addition to the wind turbines, the project would add a control center for the wind power plant and a connection to the power grid. Through this project, wind power will displace thermal power plants that would otherwise have been built and thereby reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 60,000 tons per year.
