Penonomé Wind Farm – Panama
Spanning more than 46,000 acres in Panama’s Coclé province, Wind Farm Penonomé is the largest wind farm in Central America. It boasts 108 wind turbines with a total wind capacity of 270 megawatts.
In addition to creating almost 500 jobs, estimated environmental impacts include:
- Meeting 7% of Panama’s energy needs (or 100,000 families)
- Avoiding approximately 450,000 metric tons of carbon emissions
- Mitigating nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide emissions
Maintaining wind turbines is estimated to be half that of hydropower plants. As such, experts estimate Panama will invest another $3 billion towards wind power in coming years.
