Consortium Invested Energy Punta Cana and Macau (CEPM) $140 million to expand its power generation capacity Thus saving 98% of the energy needed by the large hotel chains in the region.
With InterEnergy Group, as a parent company, Within two years, CEPM has expanded its generating capacity by 85MWby integrating a natural gas-to-natural gas regasification plant and installing a static compensator for the reactive power of the 138 kilowatt (KV) line, which increases the quality of electricity service.
The Foundation’s CEO, Roberto Herrera, along with the General Manager, Oscar San Martín and other executives, received at their facilities Listín Diario director Miguel Franjul with his wife, journalist Wendy Santana de Franjulwith whom they discussed their achievements, projects and contributions in order to help Bavaro Punta Cana become one of the first smart cities in the Caribbean.

All of these new projects expand our capacity to generate and transmit energy, with the expected growth of the tourist areas we serve. We are very proud to support energy growth based on an innovation agenda that ensures economic development in this important tourist destination for the country,” Herrera noted.
Its energy service Modern technology, from one antenna in a multi-client area, It is monitored from a panel in the central headquarters, services are opened or closed remotely, and their consumption is known, just as public lighting is controlled.
To maintain their efficiency levels, they work online and in case of odds, access times are around 15 minutes, on average, at the same time the screens are updated with results read every meter, Connected.
