 Cemex Dominicana to buy 11.5MW of wind power
02 June 2016

The power company EGE Haina will sell wind energy to Cemex Dominicana, for its cement plant located in San Pedro (east), as a unregulated user of the National Interconnected Electric System (SENI).

The agreement allows Cemex to replace electricity generated from fossil fuels, with energy from renewable sources for its San Pedro plant, thereby lowering its CO2 emissions. 

The 11.5MW (average) of clean energy contracted from EGE Haina will be added to the 1.5MW which Cemex itself produces with its 5040 solar panels.

The agreement signed by EGE Haina general manager, Marcelo Aicardi, and Cemex Dominicana president, Carlos Emilio Gonzalez, who stressed that strategic alliance reaffirms his company’s commitment to preserving the environment, a principle he affirms guides Cemex’s operations.

"Cemex, adhering to its strategy to reduce carbon emissions, continues to increase the use of renewable energy. Through this agreement we take a momentous step, contracting all the energy required by our plant in San Pedro de Macoris from renewable sources," Mr Gonzalez said.
