Huge solar array in the Dominican Republic is the Caribbean's largest

The solar array at Monte Plata is being touted as the island nation’s ticket to economic and energy independence. Once the second phase of construction is complete—which is expected by the end of this year—its output will increase the solar power produced in the small country by fivefold. Martin Haupts, CEO of Phanes Group, says the solar array will benefit citizens directly and open up new opportunities. “With much of the Caribbean challenged by expensive fuel imports,” he said, “solar has the ability to liberate these island nations from economic and energy dependency, increasing the energy security and reducing greenhouse gas emissions while helping elevate communities.”
