Costa Rica's Power and Light Company Pioneers Environmental Education and Clean-up, Use of Alternative Energy

By Lic. Leda Garcia (translated from Spanish by Debra Latham)

Radio For Peace International and CNFL (the National Power and Light Company of Costa Rica) signed a cooperative agreement last March facilitating the broadcast of two weekly 30 minute programs produced by CNFL at RFPI. The objective of the programs is to let a world audience know about the innovative work of the Company in the areas of electric transportation, urban design and planning, environmental education, reforestation, and utilization of solid wastes carried out by their Transportation Division, headed by Eduardo Brenes Mata, M.S., and The Virilla Watershed Project, headed by environmentalist Manuel A. Bolanos.

The radio programs are produced by Lic. Leda Garcia, Coordinator of the Department of Public Relations and Press for the projects. In both programs professionals participate discussing the topics previously mentioned. Engineer Pablo Cob Saborio, General Manager of CNFL and active promoter of the struggle to decontaminate the environment, also actively participates in the programs. Thanks to his vision and effort the Power and Light Company not only provides the Costa Rican citizens with electricity, but also through CNFL's innovative projects educates them to become better citizens, conscious of the problems of the environment so that through sustainable development they can find rapid solutions and put into practice a decontamination plan for the San Jose metropolitan area and the counties of Goicochea, Moravia, Vasquez de Coronado, Tibas, and Santo Domingo de Heredia which form part of the Virilla River watershed.
