The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) are calling on its subscribers to save energy during this dry season, before we see a decline in water levels of the major reservoirs.
Greivin Mayorga, deputy electricity ICE, said: “We manage our reservoirs and plan to maintain the safety levels for the critical months of this summer.”
In the case of Arenal, it is currently at 541 meters above sea level but is in a steady declining curve. Meanwhile, Cachí is currently at a level of 988 meters above sea level.
Mayorga believes that energy should be saved, especially during March, April and May.
The electrical energy generated by ICE comes in from 93% clean sources.
