Peru increases electricity output

Mar 15, 2011 12:00 AM

Peru's electricity production continued to rise in 2011, with production in February 2011 up 9.2% over the same month the previous year as energy demand rises alongside strong economic growth. The Energy and Mines Ministry said that electricity production was 2,990 GW/h in February and that 62% of it came from hydroelectric plants.

Edegel SAA was the largest producer in the month, with 22% of national production, followed by state-owned Electroperu, with 18%. Peru's gross domestic product is expected to expand by about 7% during 2011.
