Wind energy in Panama: first wind farm on the road

Panama is taking its first steps to leverage its large wind potential. In Panama there is still no wind turbines in operation. According to the National Authority of Public Services (ASEP), there are 25 approved wind power applications.

Of these, five wind power plants are completed and the rest still requires compliance with certain procedures before implementation. One of the wind farm initiatives in the province of Cocle, has started construction for a 225 MW wind farm with an estimated investment of 360 million.
