QCOSTARICA – President Solis has rejected the possibility of harnessing geothermal energy in national parks describing their exploitation as “unnecessary”.

While discussions continue at the national roundtable on energy which will supposedly inform the government and the public of its findings in the month of March, President Solis has already ruled out the use of geothermal energy in protected areas. “… This is the second time that the Government has brought forward criterion; they did it in November, when burying the Power Contingency Act. That plan would have allowed greater private participation. ”

Nacion.com reports that “… Although not impeding their progress, this prohibition weakens the three bills on geothermal energy which are under analysis in the Legislative Assembly. In two of them (18,182 and 19,339), the Libertarian Movement aims to exploit this source of energy throughout the national territory, via the ICE and private firms. ”

“… With project 19,233, instead they are seeking for exploitation to be permitted anywhere in the parks, but only in the hands of ICE and using stringent environmental requirements. ” The deputy Otton Solis said “… We need to open up all possible options when it comes to friendly energies that create jobs. The project will continue, but without the support of the President it is losing strength. ”
