Colombia maintains energy exports despite drought

Despite drought and the possibility of power rationing, Colombia said it will continue exporting electricity to neighboring countries.

The country’s energy and mining ministry said it will honor its energy commitment with Ecuador, which relies heavily on imported electricity.

“However, our energy exports will still depend on the amount of resources available, taking into account our low hydrology, which could continue until March 2010,” the ministry said.

Water levels at hydroelectric facilities on Nov. 8, 2009, were at 70.1 percent. Alert levels begin at 59.2 percent.
