Data from Bolivia's Comite Nacional de Despacho de Carga (CNDC) shows the country was within 10 MW of meeting its record capacity demand in April.
The country's record for demand was established this past November, when consumers drew 1,201 MW of capacity. Bolivia's maximum capacity demand was 1,194 MW last month.
CNDC said 33.1% of the country's 644 GWh of gross generation in April came from hydropower projects, with 68.8% coming from thermoelectric sources and the remainder from wind.
The mark represents a slight decrease for hydro year-over-year, when hydroelectric plants contributed 31.5% of 595 GWh generated in April 2013.
