Dominican renewable energy project developer and EPC ReFeel RD installed a 1.5 MW PV plant in Puerto Viejo, province of Azua (DR).

The PV system, which covers aproximately a 2 hectare area is located within the Monte Rio thermal power plant premises. The installation, an auto-generation plant, is owned by Lear Investment, owner of Generadora Monte Rio and Generadora San Felipe, one of the biggest thermal generation company of the country.

According to Giovanni Fois, ReFeel RD’s Managing Director, this is one of the biggest auto generation plants in the country and will help Lear Investment to start a strategy of diversification of its current energy production mix, in order to both hedge the risk associated to volatility price in the oil market and consistently reduce the current generation cost.
