• The project entails an investment of $US 150 million. Work will begin in September and will employ 500 employees during the construction phase.

• With this 50MW plant, ISOFOTON will generate 74.532,61MW/hour per year of clean energy, representing the estimated energy consumption needs of 58,411 families, while reducing CO2 emissions by 44,014.16 tons annually.  

• ISOFOTON plans to expand its production capacity substantially and strengthen its leadership in Latin America, which, together with the United States and Asia, will lead photovoltaic development in the next decade.

ISOFOTON and the Government of the Dominican Republic have signed last weekend a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) giving the company the green light to begin construction of one of Latin America's largest photovoltaic plants. The plant will be built in the Dominican Republic and will represent the country's first such installation. With an investment of $US 150 million and located in La Victoria, 15 km from Santo Domingo, construction of the plant is expected to begin in September, employing 500 workers during the initial phases. The plant will have a nominal power output of 44MW and a peak power output of 50.6MW. Environmental benefits will also be substantial, since the plant will generate 74,532.61MW/hour per year of clean energy, equaling the estimated supply used by 58,411 families. This entails a reduction of CO2 emissions of 44,014.16 tons per year. Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) are the most widely extended type of contract in the United States for developing new sources of energy generation.

The signing of the contract follows the concession that was awarded last month, an event that was witnessed by Dominican Republic authorities and Ángel Luis Serrano, ISOFOTON's President. Says Mr. Serrano: "This will be a model plant in the Latin American continent, where the potential for growth in the photovoltaic sector is enormous. Latin America is one of the photovoltaic markets that will drive the use of renewable energy and ISOFOTON's plant in the Dominican Republic, together with the one we will be starting up in Ecuador, will be one of the leaders driving this progress".
