Puerto Plata Utilities

Puerto Plata utilities are serviced by both public (governmental) and private providers, and the area where you live will be determining which provider you can choose. The National grid in the North Dominican Republic is serviced by Electricidad del Norte (Edenorte) which delivers with minimal interruption in most communities.

The second player (PPE) is dedicated to Playa Dorada and its surrounding areas of El Doral, Torre Alta, etc. in the main city (San Felipe), with close to 99% uptime. Considering the amount of sunlight in the island and the savings from it, many are installing solar power technology in their homes.

Electrical Voltage in Dominican Republic is 110V

In the DR you can find type A and type B outlets and connectors. We use 220V only for air conditioning connections; you can choose to install 220V outlets in your home if you truly need them (special European appliances might require it).
