Boca Chica, Santo Domingo. In addition to offering a space for vacation and a family getaway, the Nautical Club of Santo Domingo inaugurates a new charging station for electric vehicle users, hand in hand with Evergo, the largest and most sophisticated network of electric charging stations in the Dominican Republic.
The initiative is part of the commitment of the Nautical Club with the Boca Chica environment, which in recent years has been developing actions in support of the protection of the environment, this being a space free of plastic, which has its own plant for treatment of wastewater, and that now joins efforts to promote, together with Evergo, a more sustainable mobility in this area.
The opening ceremony included the words of Mr. Juan Lehoux, Commodore of the Nautical Club of Santo Domingo, who indicated that “It is a great contribution to our philosophy and to the environmental commitment that we carry every day as a Club. For us it is a great satisfaction to contribute to the expansion of electric charging stations in the Boca Chica area and to do so with Evergo”.
For his part, Wellington Reyes, Commercial and Innovation Director of InterEnergy Systems Dominicana, the company that operates Evergo, stated “We are very happy to continue adding allies who share our vision of accelerating the transition to sustainable mobility in the Dominican Republic. On this occasion, we are honored to have the support of the Nautical Club of Santo Domingo, which undoubtedly represents a strategic point where both tourists and Dominicans choose to vacation and spend quality time with relatives”.
