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.[2] 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.[1]

In 2018, the power station underwent modernization to increase the potential from 45.6 MW to 52 MW using the same amount of coal.[3]
