In this way, this Central American nation, which closed 2022 with 99.25 percent electricity coverage, expects to surpass that figure and complete an annual goal of 99.4 percent.
Nicaraguan Minister of Energy and Mines, Salvador Mansell, in declarations to the Pastran Report bulletin, reported that the country is expanding its energy transmission capacity to places that were previously excluded.
In this sense, he highlighted the development achieved in the two regions of the Caribbean Coast (North and South), which are fully integrated to the national interconnected system thanks to the efforts of the Sandinista Executive.
In this regard, the government official reported that currently the South Caribbean zone has a coverage of 98.99 percent, much higher than in 2006 when it did not even reach 30 percent.
In 2006 only 9.8 million dollars had been invested in electric energy in the Caribbean coast of the country. This government, for the people, has invested 232 million dollars with a new national interconnected system’, he stressed.
