AES expanding Dominican Republic Renewables Footprint

AES expanding Dominican Republic renewables footprint

Plans by US energy group AES to tap the clean energy potential of the Dominican Republic are gaining momentum with the development of a new solar project.

 

The Caribbean country’s national energy commission CNE has authorized Enertis Solar to carry out resource studies for AES Andres’ 65.25MWp Santanasol (formerly known as Pizarrete) solar project in the municipality of Nizao, Peravia province.

 

Last May, CNE granted an 18-month provisional concession to the AES unit to conduct further analysis for the proposed plant in the lead-up to a definitive concession.

 

AES recently broke ground on the 58MW Bayasol solar park, also in Peravia, which marked the entrance of the group to renewable energies in the Dominican Republic, where AES Dominicana already supplies the grid from thermo-fired generation.

 

Meanwhile, CNE granted Irradiasol Dominicana an 18-month provisional concession for the 75.85MWp Pedro Corto solar plant, which would be built in San Juan de la Maguana province.

 

Irradiasol, which submitted the concession request in August, is affiliated with Soventix Caribbean, according to information from the Domincian Republic’s national industrial property office (Onapi).
