Wind energy in Dominican Republic : Los Cocos wind farm

EGE-Haina general manager Tito Sanjurjo said the second stage will triple the site’s installed capacity, with 26 additional wind turbines manufactured by Gamesa, which will generate 52 more MW.

He said the expansion is projected to conclude in December, when Los Cocos will have 40 wind turbines to produce 77 MW of energy, enough to supply 150,000 homes.

He said Los Cocos’ second stage will save the country 500,000 barrels of oil per year and prevent the emission of nearly 200,000 tons of CO2 annually.
