This neighborhood is an example that citizens are ready to work

That window of opportunity to stop the worst of Climate change where the expert committees that were discussed so much, were closed. ALMOST seven years left what is left until 2030, to take strong steps. We must stop global warming at all costs, and prevent the Earth’s temperature from increasing by 1.5 degrees more than the average temperature we had before industrial times, which has increased by one degree.

This goal is intended for Plans Against Climate Change that all Andalusian municipalities are obliged to prepare and approve, within the framework of the determinations of the Andalusian Climate Action Plan.

“Savings and efficiency, as well as the commitment of energy communities, are always technical proposals for mitigation and adaptation that we make in the preparation of plans,” he said. Amanda Rivilla. He has a degree in Marine Sciences, environmental educator, and consultant to the World of Atlantisan environmental consultancy that prepares these plans for cities such as Puerto Real, San Fernando, Tarifa, and many others in the province of Cádiz.

“What has become of this neighborhood, of Garden City in Puerto Realan example we should follow and show that Citizens are confident in what they do. “It gives me great joy.” The environmental management expert did not hide his enthusiasm to learn about the project, confident that it would serve as an example and inspire many other people, and that measures would be taken to destroy those walls of fear that we sometimes have when facing problems. new.

Rivillas explained that we undergoing changes in the level of consumption and energy, which can be quite traumatic. Reject fossil fuels and make way for renewables It’s not a smooth road and it probably isn’t not available to everyone because the investment is imposed. However, together it can be achieved, as they did in the neighborhood of Ciudad Jardín.

This is an example of shared self-consumption: a group of people who agree to have solar panels on their roofs, supplying them for their common areas or their homes

“Fortunately progress is very rapid for several reasons. First, because it has become easier to install plates at home, more companies do it and there are more facilities. In addition, the regulations, fortunately, have also become more flexible,” he pointed out.

In this project, which combines the advantages of significantly lowering the cost of electricity bills and contributing to the necessary fight against climate change, Amanda Rivillas added a third leg, which is “create community between neighbors strengthening relationships and sharing the same project.”

One of the main developments that have taken place in shared self-consumption projects is that now it is not necessary to have solar panels on your roof. “We have come to power self-consumption within a radius of two kilometers around”, tints.

Many city councils launch and provide roofs to public buildings for some collective projects. “That’s where the local energy communities thus, where you not only use the energy you produce but, in addition, the surpluses you have can be reinvested in improving your own home, in plugs for electric cars or on projects against energy poverty which is what they are trying to promote.

However, energy communities are moving slowly. In Spain, according to data from the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE), around half a hundred of the energy communities, unrelated to other northern European countries, which are more advanced in this sense.

“The local communities are also slow to act because there must be a serious commitment on the part of the city councils. In city ​​of Cadiz Tried it, although it seems now the issue is more suppressed. on Port Real They also want to start, but there are some operating in places like Aroche and Arroyomolinos de León (Huelva) or Monachil (Granada), with great success.”
