Cooperativa Hidroeléctrica de la Montaña

The Cooperativa Hidroeléctrica de la Montaña is Puerto Rico's first electric power cooperative. The Cooperativa Hidroeléctrica de la Montaña is organized with the purpose of providing cost-effective and resilient energy from renewable sources for its Owner-Partners in the municipalities of Adjuntas, Jayuya, Lares, Maricao and Utuado. The efforts of the Cooperativa Hidroeléctrica de la Montaña are aimed at strengthening the communities in the Cordillera Central so that its residents no longer suffer the challenges, risks and harm to their health and economy due to the lack of reliable and resilient electricity. To achieve this, the Cooperativa Hidroeléctrica de la Montaña will provide reliable, cost-effective and resilient energy from renewable sources through its three main projects.

Our Projects

The three projects of the Cooperativa Hidroeléctrica de la Montaña are complementary and a social investment to improve the living conditions of the residents of the Cordillera Central. In addition, they will promote the economic development of the towns in their service area. The Cooperativa Hidroeléctrica de la Montaña will also promote the creation of direct and indirect jobs for the residents of these communities.
