and the councilor of Lorca that counts on the City council of Totana for the layout and evacuation point of the future large solar plant] | The City Council of Totana has known the probable purchase-sale operation of X-Elio by the energy operators Repsol and Iberdrola |
Andrés García considers that the municipality of Lorca is the biggest beneficiary of the project, and those of Totana and Aledo are the ones harmed by the landscaping impact and the environmental aggression generated by the execution of the project
The mayor of Totana, Andrés García Cánovas, has demanded the new company owner of X-Elio, the photovoltaic solar energy platform that has planned to build a large plant of 319 megawatts in the districts of Lorca highlands of Zarcilla de Ramos and La Paca;
as well as the mayor of Lorca, Fulgencio Gil, who is "necessarily" with the totanero City Council for the layout and evacuation point of the future station.
The totanero Consistory has known the operation of sale of X-Elio, promoter of the aforementioned project, which is gestating with the entry into the shareholding of the company of energy operators Repsol and Iberdrola;
reason why its mayor hopes that the new owners "count obligatorily" with the municipalities of Totana and Aledo before promoting the construction works.
Andrés García has reiterated his commitment and unconditional support, on behalf of the municipal Corporation and the residents of Totana, to the Platform of Affected by the Lorca-Aledo-Totana High Voltage Line, as well as to the more than 400 neighbors affected. for this photovoltaic macro plant, which will occupy some 1,400 hectares in an area of â€‹â€‹great environmental and landscape value.
The totanero councilor has asked the new energy operators to assess "the social and environmental crisis" that this project may cause;
insisting that "the municipality of Lorca is the biggest beneficiary of the project, while those of Totana and Aledo are the big ones harmed by the landscape impact and the environmental aggression generated by their execution".
García Cánovas has specified that the high voltage line, which will cross the municipalities of Aledo and Totana along about 40 kilometers, will cause serious environmental damage and the properties of more than 400 affected that will be "irreversible", starting with the municipality of Aledo and seriously harming the farmers and neighbors of both terms.
The mayor of Totana has shown his institutional commitment to sources of renewable and clean energy;
but it has reproached to the promoters that this drawn up one of the high tension line is "a nonsense";
so it has persevered that "we will continue to support, as we have done all this term, the claims of those affected."
In addition, he reported that he and his town planning councilor, as well as the mayor of Aledo, Juan José Andreo, are still pending for more than a year of the response of the mayor of Lorca to hold a bilateral meeting to address this project " without harming any of the parties ";
and regretted the "permanent inaction" of the regional government in this matter.
Similarly, Andrés García believes that the misinformation of the City of Lorca in relation to the processing by the Council of Ministers to obtain administrative procedures and information intoxication about the creation of the number of jobs in the project is "interested and improper of a municipal institution, which is proving partisan and contrary to the general interest. "
Finally, the mayor added that this move of purchase and acquisition of shares demonstrates that behind the X-Elio photovoltaic solar energy platform "there is only a mere speculation more than a management of ecological and energy transition, and no type of social or environmental vision ".
