El Salvador Paper Mill Going Green
Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--El Salvador relies heavily on fossil fuels to meet its energy needs, and it imports electricity from neighboring countries to meet its domestic demand. El Salvador's National Energy Council is developing its National Energy Policy 2020-2050, which aims to reduce the electricity tariff by increasing renewable electricity generation, thus facilitating the eventual elimination of electricity subsidies.
El Salvador's Alas Doradas absorbent paper factory, which has a production capacity of 100 tons per day, is among those seeking to benefit from renewable eneregy. Developer Enervita (San Salvador, El Salvador) will make the initial investment, and later the mill will pay a fee for the use of electricity generated by a solar plant. The company will build a renewable energy system comprising 9,400 solar panels, with total output of 5 megawatts. The system will begin operations in the fourth quarter of 2021.
