Investor seeks permit for 100-MW wind plants in Dominican Republic - report

June 12 (SeeNews) - Energia Eolica Renovable de Puerto Plata is waiting for a permit to install four wind farms of 100 MW each in the Dominican Republic, local daily Listin Diario said Friday, quoting the company's administrative manager, Carlos Emmerich Danzer.

The Dominican Agrarian Institute has recently issued permits for plots in the Puerto Plata province, while national utility Corporacion Dominicana de Empresas Electricas Estatales (CDEEE) has signed a letter of intent. Nonetheless, for a year and a half the developer has been waiting for a permit from president Danilo Medina, necessary for the start of the project.

The company already has lease option agreements with the provisional owners of the land, while now it needs the guarantees to offer a service to the Dominicans, the official said.
