Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] The Dominican Republic’s government took a step forward last week in its plans to install more renewable energy by signing an agreement with Sunovia Energy Technologies for the installation of the country’s first solar energy plant.
The facility will represent an investment of approximately US $200 million and create approximately 2,500 jobs. Details about the size of the project and technologies to be used are expected to be released in the coming months along with site selection and a development time table.
The contract signed with Sunovia follows other recent investments for renewable energy in the Dominican Republic. Other deals have been signed with Masada Resource Group, STC Engineering and Burbano Recycling, which have built renewable electricity and bio-fuels plants in the country.
