Three institutional changes reflected attempts to set Colombia's electric program on a sound national basis. Two of these changes occurred in 1967: the creation of an Electric Interconnection Company, ISA, and the establishment of a regional corporation, Corelca, for the Atlantic coast provinces. The next year the national government decided that Electraguas, which henceforth would be known as ICEL (Colombian Institute of Electrification), should devote itself exclusively to electric power. The Colombian Institute for Agrarian Reform would assume charge of the flood control and irrigation projects. The national government also hoped that this streamlined ICEL would be able to develop a dynamic push through the newly created ISA, but ISA failed its first major test with the Chivor project. The attempts to develop a nuclear energy program complete the picture of the government's endeavors to electrify Colombia.
