Blowing in the wind!

THE Canary Islands’ renewable energy for wind farms will increase dramatically over the next few years.

Today, 7.6% of the Islands’ power comes from this source, and it will jump to 11% in 2016.

And, says the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism, it’s just the beginning. Officials are looking to increase the reliance on wind energy in the Archipelago, and a new power “auction” will be introduced.

Blowing in the wind!

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
