DESCRIPTION

The Programme for the Rehabilitation of Distribution Networks and the Reduction of Electrical Losses implemented by the CDEEE (Corporation of Dominican State Electricity Companies) seeks to progressively reduce technical and non-technical energy losses in electricity distribution companies.

The objective of this programme is to contribute to the sustainability of the power sector by strengthening the national electricity company’s operational procedures and corporate performance, and by improving the sustainability of rural electricity supply. This intervention will reduce generation costs, review the current tariff structure, assess options for power generation using low-carbon technologies and improve access to sustainable energy. 

RESULTS
  • The programme, together with the strengthened national energy subsidy, will benefit the poorest population of the Dominican Republic who are the most affected by the unreliability of the electric service.
  • Energy savings of 57 ktCO2e per year.
