Honduras will add 250 MW to its grid within the first six months of 2015 thanks to seven new solar photovoltaic plants. This according to Gerardo Salgado, planning manager of state-owned Empresa Nacional de Energía Eléctrica (ENEE), in an interview with local newspaper El Heraldo.

The power stations will be located in the Choluteca and Valle departments in the South of the country, Seenews reported.

Among the coming projects is a 24 MW plant which is being constructed by local company Energía Básica. The PV plant will start operations next March.

ENEE wants to reach 619 MW from photovoltaic devices with future projects.
