In this article, an analysis is made on the sale of the electrical energy made by Ecuador to other countries, also mentioning the beginnings of the electricity market in the country. The hydroelectric projects built in the last decade are described, which are the ones that will guarantee the export of the energy resource. There is talk of the amount of energy that is exported in MWh, to the countries of Colombia and Peru, as well as the limitations that have arisen in the infrastructure when sending the energy. There is also talk of the benefit that the sale of electrical energy brings to Ecuador and the profit that this implies. The objective of this article is to make known how the sale of electrical energy from Ecuador to other countries is carried out, and how much it enters the country as a profit for it, in addition to analyzing the current situation as energy exporters and looking for possible solutions in case of find difficulties or deficiencies.
