Dominican Republic saves U.S. $1.8 billion using natural gas to generate power

AES Dominicana president Edwin de los Santos says the DR achieved savings of US$1.8 billion by using natural gas instead of fossil fuels since 2004.

The AES President believes the barrier to expanding the use of natural gas is in the construction of regasification terminals, where the fuel returns to its gaseous state from the liquid state having to reach the terminal.
