    Default Stealing electricity

    The electrical police just caught that big water theme park in Sanitago -Cascada- stealing electricity. Apparently its the third time they have been caught bypassing the meters. Amazing how pervasive electrical theft is in the DR. With the cost of electricity I dont think that a business that uses a lot of electricity can survive. Shame, I like water parks. I think the one near Sosua had the same fate and closed. No way you are going to run the pumps to move water without a lot of juice. What is the solution? In the real world you go to jail for stealing electricity. Hate to see the DR turn into anything like the real world.
    Since Santiago lacks a beautiful beach like Sosua the water theme park made it a little more livable and now thats gone.

    Stealing electricity, not baseball is the national past time in DR. Well if kaskada didn't want to pay EdeNorte for it's juice then they should have generated their own.

    It looks like the costs of electricity pretty much dooms water theme parks in the DR along with any business that requires a substantial amount of electricity. The electric companies have priced themselves out. What is worse is that there is no solution on the horizon.

    Here is the answer. Hire a few hundred unemployed to pedal bicycle generators. They supposedly can generate 200 kwh. With current costs averaging about RD$5 per kwh they should be able to pay for equipment and salary for pedalers. Need the engineers to give us the down side. Bicycle Generator.  The Pedal-A-Watt Stationary Bicycle Generator.
