"Shellder Cordova announced that two hydroelectric plants will be built to generate energy with an installed capacity of 5 MW, which will take advantage of the waters of the Polochic River basin.

A 22.5 and 28-meter-long Tyrolean-type diversion dam will be built, with its respective intake and desanding works on the Polochic riverbed, to convey a flow of 16 m3/second, through a 110 and 1,010-meter-long adduction channel, to a desander and loading chamber.
 
The desander and loading chamber will be transported by a 96-inch diameter steel pressure pipe between 168 and 795 meters long. The powerhouse site will occupy an area of between 1,535 and 1,550 m2, including space for the transformer substation.
 
The turbined flow will be returned to the Polochic River 1.10 km downstream of the intake site in the same channel by means of a discharge spillway."

Guatemala: Another Hydroelectric License Suspended
June 2017
The Constitutional Court has temporarily suspended the environmental license granted to the 40 MW Rocja Pontilá hydroelectric project located in Cobán, Alta Verapaz.
The Court's decision is based on a case filed by members of the communities in the area near the lagoon of Lachúa, who argue that the Ministry of Environment granted permission to develop the project "anomalously."
Guatemala Authorizes Hydroelectrics
September 2011
The National Energy Commission has endorsed a number of hydroelectric generation projects that currently lack authorization to use the river flow.
Among the approved projects are hydroelectric La Perla (in San Miguel Tucurú, Alta Verapaz), presented by Hidrosacpur S.A., with a capacity of 3.7 megawatts and the Santa Teresa project, which will provide 16 megawatts for the system, presented by Agrocomercial Polochic.
