Electric vehicle charge station expansion in the Dominican Republic

The future of electric vehicles is coming fast in the DR

Betting on sustainability and clean mobility, Centro Cuesta Nacional (CCN) announced the new facility of a route of charging stations for electric vehicles with coverage from Punta Cana to Santiago, in the stores of Supermercados Nacional and Jumbo.“We believe that through sustainable actions we achieve a better environment, which is why we recognize that electric mobility is a way of guaranteeing the sustainability of transport in the future. Understanding our responsibility as a company committed to sustainability, we joined Evergo to place state-of-the-art electric vehicle charging stations in our branches,” said José Miguel González Cuadra, executive president of CCN.

Currently, the network has chargers in seven branches of Centro Cuesta Nacional. In addition, there are chargers installed in Jumbo Luperón and La Romana. The project is being carried out in partnership with Interenergy Systems Dominicana, and its Evergo technology platform, which also includes the Punta Cana – Macao Energy Consortium (CEPM).

The company offers the service through an application that customers can download from the AppStore and Google Play stores, and in an agile and easy way to purchase the electric charge from their mobile phone. “This project tries to offer innovative solutions for our clients, and this includes the facilities that we offer them when they visit us. The installed chargers are the first to charge quickly in the country on the route with the greatest coverage, which allows the full charging of any electric vehicle in approximately one hour,” said Julián Elías, director of Corporate Maintenance at Centro Cuesta Nacional.
