    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Bolivia may begin to cover one hundred percent of its domestic electricity demand in 2018 with the production of power plants being built in the country announced the Bolivian President, Evo Morales.

    The president, who on Saturday inspected the arrival of two turbines for the thermal power plant in Warnes, in eastern Bolivia, said that once they have covered their internal needs, the energy produced by the national hydroelectric plants may be used for export.

    According to Morales, the government estimates that by 2020 they will export at least 1,000 megawatts of power, with Argentina as one of the first recipients after the energy exchange memorandum signed this week between the two countries.

    The thermal power plant to be built in Warnes ensures – according to data released by the state agency ABI – that the electric power installed in the new Latin American Industrial Park amounts to about 2,000 megawatts.

    This facility, which involved an investment of $177 million, will add 400 megawatts of power to the grid of Bolivia.
