Windpower for Samana.

The beach town of Las Galeras in Samana became the first part of the DR to benefit from clean electricity generated by wind power, said Jose Oscar Orsini, president of Luz y Fuerza de Las Terrenas, C.A. power company, reports DR1 Daily News (Aug. 31, 2007). The operation of the 60KW generator will reduce electricity prices by 5-8% for consumers in Las Galeras and provide 15% of the power used there. The company plans to sell the kWh for US$0.15 and US$0.17. Luz y Fuerza has the concession for power distribution in the north and east of the Samana Peninsula. It purchases the power from Generadora Eolica de Las Galeras, S.A., presided by Jaime Fernandez.
