"The Cabildo pays for the electrification of nine farming and livestock farms with renewable energies"
Fuerteventura's Cabildo has invested 183.845 Euros for the electrification with renewable energies of nine farming and livestock exploitations that weren't connected to the main network. The Cabildo has, therefore, granted quantities that range between 2.250 and 30.000 Euros depending on the size of the farms and the consumption requirements. Those grants for the electrification of farming and livestock exploitations with renewable energies are included in the Strategic Plan for Energy Saving and Promotion of Renewable Energies of the Cabildo. Amongst the criteria of selection dictated by the Cabildo, it says that the farms have to be new, they can't have benefited from previous similar plans, they can't have requested or received similar support from other entities, the state of execution of the project and the size of cultivated spaces or the number of livestock heads.
