urban residences, drought, kilowatt-hours, Colombia, percent

Colombia has many hydroelectric installations, and 76 percent of its electricity was produced by such facilities in 1999. A drought in 1992 brought about electricity rationing in much of the country. Consequently the government initiated the construction of new thermoelectric power plants and improved natural gas distribution to urban residences. In 1999 the country’s annual output of electricity was 44 billion kilowatt-hours.
