Costa Rican utility Compañía Nacional de Fuerza y Luz (CNFL) is studying the country's central valley for wind plant sites of up to 5 MW, CNFL projects department executive Carlos Solera says. The studies will be completed by end 2001. The utility buys 95% of its power from its owner, state controlled power and telecommunications company Instituto Costarricence de Electricidad and has 11 generation projects slated for the next ten years so that it will not have to increase the percentage of power it must buy from its parent. CNFL does not at present have any wind powered generation facilities.
