Dominican Republic tops region in renewable energy
Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic has recently become the region’s leading country in installed renewable energy systems, whose electricity is sold to the power companies, by citizens, and small and large businesses as well.
Quoted by diariolibre.com, National Energy Commission president Enrique Ramirez called it a milestone, since renewable energy system grow at an average of 200 kilos per month, and revealed a “leap” in July.
“Right now the systems’ capacity of around 5.5 megawatts is being sold, from the more renewables installed. The two-way meters sell the system’s 5.5 megawatts, equal to the supply for Jarabacoa and part of Constanza,” the official said.
He said the Dominican Fiesta Hotel will start producing 230 KW on Wednesday and the Frederick Schad Shipping Agency will have around 460 kilos on July 16.
“But next month we’re introducing nearly one megawatt of clean energy, and not just that, but also a solution in which citizens themselves look for a solution that is then very favorable to the environment and very favorable for Dominican Republic’s energy independence,” Ramirez said.
