Pucon Without Dams

Will this be the future for Pucon ? This is the proposed transmission line from the hydro project called Pueso-Momolluco 52 KM long and 50 meters high. The investment will be funded on the stock market by an initial investment of $90 million USD. Once these transmission lines are established stopping other hydro projects will be that much harder. Lets fight to stop the destruction of this natural resource. ‪#‎ElRioNosUne‬

Hydro Puesco-Momolluco

On March 03 the project Puesco-Momolluco entered the Chilean system of environmental review. Before the report was released there was talk of a “small hydro” that would have a low impact on the environment. With the release of the report we now see that is not the reality. Instead there is projected investment of 90 million US dollars generating 175 GW / h per year to be funded on the stock market. Profits will go to investor and Pucon and surroundings area will be left with the damage. This is to take place with the Villarrica National Park and the headwaters of the Trancura river. Government agencies have until April 17 to decide on this important matter
