Bolstering Renewable Energy Generation
A central aim of the Renewable Energy Promotion Law of 2007 in the Dominican Republic has been to lessen the country’s carbon footprint. Towards this goal is the construction of a 10 MWp solar PV plant in Santo Domingo Este. The project involves setting up a 5.3 km transmission line to connect the solar plant to the Maranatha 69 kV substation and a 500m² solar hybrid greenhouse to demonstrate solar power’s role in sustainable agriculture.
Network of Sustainability Advocates
The project is a collective effort. Participating entities including Maranatha Energy Investment SRL, Empresa Distribuidora de Electricidad del Este, S.A. (EDEEste), and atmosfair gGmbH, along with financing institutions, join hands to ensure the project’s success.
Maranatha Energy Investment SRL, founded in 2015, focuses on solar power generation and sustainable development, with an aim to make the Dominican Republic a leader in clean energy within the Caribbean. Dedicated to creating jobs and fostering local development, they are committed to a greener future.
