Dominican Republic - Utilities (Electricity, Gas, Water)


Gas

In Dominican Republic there is no gas piping network. Gas cylinders are used instead, which must be filled periodically. Several companies offer the service of picking the cylinder at your house and filling it.

Modern buildings exist that have gas system by pipe and a central tank. In these cases, the expenses are included in the building's monthly maintenance bill.


Water

Tap water in the country is not fit for consumption, it can only be used for personal hygiene and cleaning. It is recommended to buy drinking water in the supermarkets, which sell it in large bottles and at a good price.

Electricity

The electricity service has been improving through the years, but it remains somewhat precarious and deficient. This has forced most users of this service to acquire an alternative electrical source, either a battery inverter, an autonomous power generator or even solar panels.

This guide was compiled with the help of Lindsay de Feliz, a British expat blogger living in the Dominican Republic. Visit her blog at yoursaucepans.blogspot.com.
