Bolivia is nationalizing the local assets of Spainís Red Electrica Corp. (REE), giving the government control of the Andean nationís power grid two weeks after neighboring Argentina seized its biggest oil company.
President Evo Morales signed the decree today, saying the Alcobendas, Spain-based companyís local investment was inadequate and energy should be controlled by the government, according to a statement on the presidential website. Bolivia generated 45.7 million euros ($60.4 million) in revenue for Red Electrica in 2011, less than 3 percent of total company sales.
