This development of projects in Guatemala and Honduras is a natural extension of the success ALLCOT has achieved in American markets, where environmental solutions have been well received.In addition, according to Focus-Economics, “Central America and the Caribbean is set to outperform Latin America, which is expected to grow only a timid 0.1% in 2016. And in 2017, the Central American and the Caribbean region is expected to grow 3.2%.” For that reason, ALLCOT Group sees this region as a primary market that cannot be overviewed on its expansion.

It is a greenfield micro scale run-of-river hydroelectric plant, with a total installed capacity of 4.324 MW. The Project activity is located 267 km west of Guatemala City in Finca Lorena, Municipality of San Rafael Pie de la Cuesta department of San Marcos, Guatemala, Central America. The Project activity considers the production of clean energy using a water flow of 6.0 m3/s using the Cabuzriver.
The second one is a photovoltaic solar plant with generation of Gold Standard credits are to be generated soon. The project activity involves the installation and operation of a greenfield grid-connected solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant in a plateau near the city of Nacaome in the south of the Republic of Honduras.
