After deadly protests embattled resort town to get energy relief
Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic- The Electricity Superintendence (SIE) on Monday announced technicians work to restore electricity service within four months, at a lower coast than currently charged by the power company Luz y Fuerza, in Las Terrenas, Samaná province (northeast).
SIE chairman Diogenes Rodriguez said once Luz y Fuerza is interconnected to the National Grid (SENI) the fee of RD$22.0 per kilowatt-hour (Kv) will fall to around $10.50.
Quoted by listin.com.do, Rodriguez said since 2011 Luz y Fuerza charges 30 different rates for energy "capriciously."
The official’s visit to Las Terrenas on Saturday comes after the violent protests against Luz y Fuerza that left at least two people dead in the popular resort town.
