The project belongs to the businessman, Isidoro Quiroga, and will be carried out through the Centinela Hydroelectric Company. Quiroga already possesses  the water rights  between the VI and X Regions to develop about  20 projects to produce about  500 MW  of energy (source: El Mercurio) and he holds a fortune assessed in the market at more than US$ 300 million (source: Diario Financiero). We do not discredit the merits he has as a businessman but this is clearly one of the thousands of projects he manages, and which, in our opinion, is dispensable and questionable due to the damage it will cause to the region’s future, to its flora and fauna, and to its scenic value.
