El Salvador will finally have its first wind farm at the end of the third quarter of 2020, which will be possible for Transbiaga's collaboration in its construction.
The Ventus Wind Farm will be located in the municipality of Metapán in Santa Ana and will have a capacity to generate approximately 50 Megawatts (MW), an amount of energy sufficient to meet the demand of 80,000 homes.
It will have 15 towers 120 meters high with three 67-meter blades that will generate about 170 gigawatt hours (GWh) per year.
Wind energy avoids the annual emission of about 200,000 tons of CO2 and another of its advantages is that it is not subject to international hydrocarbon prices.
In addition, with the park a reduction in the country's oil bill of about $ 14 million is expected, that is, about 160,000 barrels.
