Abstract: In October, the country’s first wind farm, near the western town of Juancho in the province of Pedernales, began generating electricity. The US$100 million project, built by public and private investors, was opened by President Leonel Fernández, who said that the 33 megawatts of wind power that the farm will generate was the first step toward helping the Dominican Republic reduce its dependence on petroleum imports.
