The Domincan Republic’s first large scale wind farms have been commissioned, generating a total of 33 MW.

The Los Cocos and Quilvio Cabrera installations are in the south of the country and were built by domestic power companies Punta Cana-Macao and EGE Haina at a cost of around $100 million. They both operate with 1.8 MW turbines from Danish wind firm Vestas.

Spanish renewables company Gamesa is developing a $127 million wind park in the north of the island, which will utilise 25 of its own turbines.
