Geothermal Update from the Consejo Regional

Please take some time to look at the letter from the president of the consejo regional of the ACG regarding the current position of the consejo and the comite técnico on the most recent proposal from ICE.

As you can see in the figure below, ICE’s proposal (red outline) overlaps substantially with the heavily-visited high-quality forest around sector Pailas and between sectors Pailas and Santa Maria.

Please read the whole document, but to summarize, the position of the comite tecnico and consejo regional is that the current proposal does not sufficiently account for the likely impacts on biodiversity and integrity of the conservation area, and a counter proposal is currently being prepared.
