Construction of CNDIt was the 60's when the Company of Force and Light, in charge of offering the electricity service to the cities in Panama and Colon at that time, decides to centralize the control that untill then had of its substations. For this porpuse, it creates the first Control Center on May 7th, 1967. This Control Center worked in the premises of the Caceres substation, and the total electric demand handled was approximatelly 50MW.

Nearly ten years later, now under the administration of the Instituto de Recursos Hidráulicos y Electrificación (IRHE) begins the construction of the new Control Center headquarters. This was a construction with very special characteristics and had a duration of two years.

National Dispatch Center - CNDThat's how, in 1977, the Control Center moves to its new and current facilities located behind the Santa Maria la Antigua University in the Ricardo J. Alfaro Ave. At the same time, simultaneous to its moving, the Control Center adopted the name of Integrated System Operation Center (COPSI).

As a product of the freeing of the country's electricity market, in 1991 COPSI becomes part of the Empresa de Transmisión Eléctrica, S. A. (ETESA) and gets renamed National Dispatch Center (CND).

Currently, the National Dispatch Center handles more than 1,600 MW total power demand of the country with the same efficiency, commitment and enthusiasm as did our founding 45 years ago.
