Energy

About half of the electricity of Central America is generated by hydroelectric installations; important dams include those on the Lempa River in El Salvador, the Cajon River in Honduras, and the Corobici and Arenal rivers in Costa Rica. Most of the rest is produced in plants using petroleum products. A small amount is generated in wood-burning facilities.
