Cemex Dominicana to buy 11.5 MW of clean energy from major plant
Santo Domingo.- The power company EGE Haina will sell wind energy to cement-maker Cemex Dominicana, for its cement plant located in San Pedro (east), as a unregulated user of the National Interconnected Electric System (SENI).
The agreement will allow CEMEX to replace the consumption of electricity from fossil fuels, with energy from renewable sources for its facility in San Pedro.
The 11.5 MW (average) of clean energy contracted from EGE Haina will be added to the 1.5 megawatt which Cemex produces with 5,040 solar panels.
The agreement signed by EGE Haina general manager Marcelo Aicardi and Cemex Dominicana president Carlos Emilio Gonzalez, who stressed that strategic alliance reaffirms his company’s commitment to preserving the environment, a principle he affirms guides Cemex’s operations.
“CEMEX, adhering to its strategy to reduce carbon emissions, continues to increase the use of renewable energy. Through this agreement we take a momentous step, contracting all the energy required by our plant in San Pedro de Macoris from renewable sources,” Gonzalez said.
