San Pedro de Marcorís—President Luis Abinader headed yesterday the inauguration of the Cumayasa I and II Photovoltaic Solar Park projects of the Ecoener Company, with a combined installed capacity of 97 megawatts, which will have an annual impact on 48,000 Dominican homes. It has an investment of US$100 million.

The Spanish renewable energy generation company Ecoener announced that it intends to close 2024 with five photovoltaic parks in operation in the Dominican Republic, with a total generation capacity of 278 megawatts (MW).

Speaking at the event, the company’s chief executive, Luis de Valdivia, emphasized that their investment is turning this country into the company’s main focus of production.

At the event, President Abinader was accompanied by the Minister of Energy and Mines, Antonio Almonte, who highlighted the government’s commitment to supporting, expanding, and encouraging projects of this type. He recalled that upon his arrival at the government, he found 457 megawatts of energy produced since the approval of the Renewable Incentives Law 57-07 in 2007 until 2020 and that in these three years, he has managed to double it.

Property titles
