Javier Lambon, President of the Government of Valente, announced this Tuesday in the city of Teruel, Alfambra, that the regional executive will tax the exploitation in the community of wind and photovoltaic farms and would revise the environmental tax on high voltage power transmission facilities.
With these measures it will be possible to raise €31 million which will be invested in preserving the landscape and guaranteeing protection of the natural environment In the areas of Aragon affected by the installation of the renewal.
Lambón met in Alfambra with representatives of the three associations of municipalities in the province that are going to manage clean energy, among them Altiplano, High Wind and Mazalino, Which he has given as an example of a model for harnessing renewable energy. “It is a smart way to order the implementation of renewable energy and to do so by region, which is a very important element”, he said. “I think everyone we must learn How these three associations have worked and to the greatest extent possible to take it to the rest of the region”, he insisted.
The regional official explained that the government of Aragon The draft for the creation of the environmental tax has already been prepared Revision of taxes on the operation of wind and photovoltaic farms, as well as on high-voltage transmission lines, although a bill covering these works is in the process of being processed by the government.
Lamban said that this fiscal regulation Will exempt facilities for self-consumption from these taxesWithout surplus for commercialization, or having a power of less than 500 kW.
The chairman of the government, Valentine, has defended the system as an “own” energy model that is “self-sustaining and lower home energy bills and Aragonese companies”, with a local consumption, within the framework of which it aims to promote self-consumption.
It is a “pioneering” model, said the regional leader, which provides, among other objectives, for the creation of a Valentine Energy Solidarity Fund, which will include compensatory investment measures in areas bearing the land charges of these facilities. .
it is ensured Aragon is being “too restrictive” in granting licenses for setting up renewable energy parks and that impacts on the landscape, “if they exist”, have been minimal.
“I think Aragon should emphasize the wonderful opportunities that renewable energy is offering to the community”, said Lambon, for whom “there is a component” in much of the criticism of this energy development model. Extremely negative and misrepresenting reality”.
