Haiti releases RFQ for power grid, and solar and LNG plants


The Haiti National Regulation Authority for Energy has just released a Request for Quotations (RFQ) for the concession of one of the country’s power grid currently operated by EDH, the state’s electric utility.

The RFQ is a collaboration between Energy Cell MTPTC and EDH, and was developed with the support of USAI, the US international development agency.

This power grid, Miragoane Grid, will cover seven cities. It currently services 15 000 customers, and plans would see the grid power up to 65 000 customers afters 5 years.

The concessions will be for 20 years, and will see the new selected operator finance, build, and operate a 6MW solar plant, and a 25.5MW LNG plant.

Proposals for other innovative energy generation mix will also be considered.
