San Ramón Rural Electrification project



The San Ramon Rural Electrification Project contribute to the sustainable development of the country since it has allowed the cheapest, non-stop throughout-the-day provision of electric power, without great voltage variations and with enough power to take care of the energy needs of the area. The project replaced a fragmented system of low voltage small plants, enabling the existence in the North Chiquitanía of Santa Cruz of a cheaper, highly reliable power source, with the right amount of power to take care of its industrial requirements. Since this area is among the poorest of Santa Cruz and Bolivia, the project has created a significant potential for the economic growth and the social development of the Chiquitanía.
