Improving Lives in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean (MCAC)

Our portfolio of distribution businesses and generation facilities in five countries in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean are responsible for providing the regions’ energy needs for today and tomorrow. Each of our businesses in the MCAC SBU have been recognized as a Great Place to Work by the Great Place to Work Institute for 2016.

Dominican Republic: Serving the Dominican Republic since 1997, AES Dominicana offers the most price-competitive electricity generation in the market. Our two deep ports support the region’s energy infrastructure—the AES Andres liquid natural gas terminal is the exclusive entry for natural gas into the country, and Itabo is the country’s only port that can receive coal and other bulk materials via Panamax shipping vessels.

El Salvador: AES El Salvador and our four distribution companies (CAESS, CLESA, EEO and DEUSEM) cover 77 percent of the country.

Mexico: Our pet coke-fired and CCGT generation facilities, located in San Luis Potosi and Mérida, supplies power to offtakers and other customers in Mexico.

Panama: AES Panama currently serves as the country’s largest electricity generator and Central America’s largest private hydroelectric generator, contributing to the region’s economic growth through our sustained investments.

Puerto Rico: Our coal-fired plant and solar plant represent approximately 9 percent of the country’s installed capacity.
