    Under the slogan “Wildlife matters“, the Tico energy sector companies that make up the National Energy Conservation Commission launched a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of protecting wildlife. The campaign seeks to publicize this issue, which represents 20% of electrical interruptions per year, as a result of the contact of wild animals and tree branches with the electricity grid.

    For this, the efforts that have been made to safeguard fauna will be disclosed and advice will be given on how citizens can contribute to this important effort. Simple actions such as pruning trees close to power lines and planting native species taking into account their height and growth space with respect to the network, can avoid the risks of electrocution.
