I'm still trying to figure out why I have 24/7 here in San Cristobal. I think maybe because I'm on the main road entering the city.

You just don't know that a retired General lives in the area...............

Windy wishes he had CEPM. As good on power as your home Country. Never goes out unless a storm. And they fix it right away...........
Yes, as your regular power provider CEPM is providing superior services, zero blackouts and in case of accidents taking down a power line or a pole the power is back up running after less than an hour, mostly even way quicker.
It comes for a price, sure, but well worth the ca 18 Pesos per Kilowatt.
All our Condos been powered by CEPM.
Here on the Campo, which is also CEPM Territory, I will not get a contract with them, due their unacceptable handing of customers with Fotovoltaik systems.
So I am here completely independend/disconnected from any power or water supplier.
And actually looking into Starlink for Internet, so if that works fine for a while I will also say good bye to claro internet connections.

Exactly. As a renter who would probably never put up solar, it would be a price I would be happy to pay.

yea but you have power 24/7 :LOL:

I would pay extra for a power company that actually kept power on 24/7. I have long been an advocate of privatizing the the corrupt and inept government power distribution currently handled by the EDE's .

CEPM does have a stupid solar policy, but I don't have solar panels and don't live near them.

How many people get away with stealing power from CEPM?

The "middle of a bagel" from what I heard. The Dominicans that I know take a Pre-Pay plan that charges less money...................
I have no idea what that idiom means.

I was simply asking how many people are able to steal power from a private company like CEPM?
It would be one reason rates are higher if there is substantial theft.

Maybe this helps. And rates are higher because service is 10 times better than Ed North........

It is wonderful nobody steals power from CEPM.

That is one reason why I have advocated for private power companies in the DR. At least that type of corruption is removed.

Yes, but it seems another type of corruption (charging people for their own solar power) replaces it.

Mike, StarLink is worth getting..... very reliable and strong
Was on their website yesterday to order.
Until now, everything ordered from outside DR, I shipped to my Miami Postal address to be shipped then from there to DR by BM Cargo.
Now, Starlink does not allow to change the shipping address to outside of the country/other than DR.
My problem is, that I do not have a address here which would be known/found by their used delivery services, which are DHL and FedEx.
I assume i could provide them with my address(which they would never find, no street names etc out here, lol) and once the package is on it's way, I contact DL/FedEx to let them know that I wish to pick up the package at their PC/Bavaro/Higuey office instead of home delivery.
Did you do such or did you have a real known street/number/building etc address they shipped to you directly?

I had it shipped to local address..... DHL or BMCargo, anything like that

Yes they'll find you.... you send them your Google Map location

Once you get it, you can change the address to your exact location... Google Maps again

I picked mine up in Nagua rather than delivery but my friend (like you) has no address - they delivered to him
