Ferrer and Yllanes meet to shape strategy around Formentera’s energy situation

reunioenergiaj1Formentera president Alejandra Ferrer met at the seat of local government today with the deputy first minister and minister of energy and manufacturing in the Balearics, Juan Pedro Yllanes. Other participants included Formentera’s councillors of land and environment, Antonio J Sanz and Rafael González, respectively, and Aitor Urresti, who heads the regional government’s energy and climate change division.

Among the numerous points of key importance for Formentera that came up for discussion at the gathering, energy was the common thread. The deputy first minister described plans to instal a third electric cable linking Eivissa and Formentera, highlighting continued progress and environmental studies of the project now under way.

Talk also focused on the response to problems faced by islanders living near the Es Ca Marí substation, with Ferrer pleading for “urgent action” to alleviate the situation.

Ferrer said work had already begun on Formentera’s special renewable energy plan to regulate and mandate the energetic, environmental and aesthetic sustainability of power stations on the island.

Conseller Yllanes reminded islanders about an info session set to take place this afternoon on money that the regional government in Palma is offering people who instal solar panels. President Ferrer called on the entire island to join the renewable energy cause—a prospect which, according to Yllanes, “Formentera’s size and consumption patterns make a whole lot easier”.
