The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad and the Grupo Pelón are inaugurating a biogas plant to generate electricity today. The site is at the Finca el Pelón de la Bajura some 10 kilometers east of Liberia.
At the same time representatives of the Universidad EARTH will be awarding the company a carbon neutral certificate.
Grupo Pelón is best known for its retail label Tio Pelón on rice and beans.
The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad is involved because it provided the technical expertise for the generating plant. An announcement said the President Laura Chinchilla will attend. She is spending the weekend in Guanacaste this week.
