A geothermal plant in the community of La Calera, Zunil, Quetzaltenango, in the Guatemalan highlands. It is owned by an Israeli company, and is an example of the kind of infrastructure that could be promoted through América Crece. When this plant was built in the early 1990s a test bore collapsed, leading to a landslide that killed 25 people. Photo by Jeff Abbott.
