Nicaragua Turns To Wind Power, Builds 19 Windmills
Managua – nergy-starved Nicaragua is turning to wind as it tries to reduce its dependence on oil-based power. In January, the country will begin operating 19 windmills that have the potential to generate 40 megawatts of energy.

Energy Minister Emilio Rappaccioli said the us$90 million project will be operating at full capacity by the end of January and contribute 6 percent of the country’s total energy needs.
