    Default How bad is the Power Problem?

    Hi guys. I am planning on moving to the DR soon and would like to understand a little more about the power situation there.

    1. How often does the power go off? (everyday, bi-weekly etc..)

    2. When it does go off how long does it stay off for on average?

    Where you will be living makes all the difference. The EDE companies that distribute power have A,B,C and D circuits with A being 24/7 (there are still power outages normally of short duration on an A circuit) and going downhill to D. There are private power companies and gated communities with generators that kick on if the power goes off, but you pay extra, sometimes a lot extra, for that. So, you need to know the exact situation where you plan to live. Do you know where yet? Please do rent for 6 months before you even consider buying a property here.

    I was considering living in the Arroyo Hondo area of Santo Domingo. Would you happen to know what zone that is?

    With a search for Santo Domingo. Good news is that Arroyo Hondo is a Class A circuit which is a good as it gets from CDEEE. Only someone that lives there can tell you how good it really is.

    From 0 to 200 KWH 4.44 $RD
    From 300 to 400 KWH 6.97 $RD
    From 500 to 700 KWH 10.86 $RD

    Go over 700 KWH and all consumption is charged at the top rate 10.86 $RD. (That is about $US 0.28 per KWH).

    We live in an A zone in los cacicazgos. Our place has a generator, fortunately. Sometimes a week will pass without losing power, and other weeks we will lose power every day at some point. It's unpredictable.
