Barahona power station is the only coal-fired power plant among the eight power plants operated by EGE Haina, one of the Dominican Republic's leading electricity producers. Located on the coast about 200 km west of Santo Domingo, the US$38.1 million, 45.6 MW power plant began operating in 2001. Coal for the plant is delivered via conveyor belt from boats anchored in the adjacent port.
In 2018, the power station underwent modernization to increase the potential from 45.6 MW to 52 MW using the same amount of coal.
