Energía Hidráulica

Hydropower

Approximately 97% of San Juan’s surface is covered by desert and mountains relying on scant precipitation; water in the province is mostly limited to what results from snow melt high up in the Andes. As such, sustaining an ever-growing population, agricultural activities, as well as local and rural industries have long made the storage, care and rationing of water in San Juan an important issue.

The Project Today

For more than ten years, San Juan has given priority to renewable energies, given in part by the need to store water for the aforementioned residential, agricultural and industrial sectors; and to furthermore generate hydropower that will help reduce the province’s energy dependence on other regions.
