El Salvador gives green light to 45MW project, nation’s first wind farm

July 15, 2021


Tracia Network Corporation has successfully commissioned El Salvador’s first wind farm, the Ventus Wind Project.

Located in Metapán, the 54MW Ventus wind farm comprises 15 Vestas V136-3.6MW turbines.

It will significantly add to El Salvador’s capacity for renewable energy generation and prevent the emission of approximately 200,000 tons of CO2 per year into the atmosphere.

In addition, the use of wind energy in El Salvador will help reduce the nation’s dependence on imported fossil fuels, provide the country with greater stability in the price of energy and diversify the national energy power grid.
