El GOVIERNO TUMBA EL MAYOR PROYECTO DE AUTOCONSUMO CON ENERGÍA FOTOVOLTAICA.

It is interesting to take a look to an article published on la Vanguardia, where they talk about a project proposed by the Catalan entrepreneur BAUDA, whic was precisely rejected because it completely left behind the ecological and environmental aspects and didn’t provide any land scape integration measures.

New cold water jug ​​for renewable sources in Catalonia. Not even the climate emergency situation clearly clears the path to clean energy. The Departament de Territori i Sostenibilitat has rejected the construction project of what was called to be the largest self-consumption photovoltaic plant in Catalonia, promoted by the businessman Joan Vila in Beuda (la Garrotxa).

The paper that has analyzed the project has issued an unfavorable opinion from the report of the territorial services of the Department of Agriculture in Girona.

This report argues that the selected soil is classified as protected agricultural undeveloped land (although the site is not being cultivated).

And, in this sense, he stresses that the Espais Agraris law stresses the importance of agricultural areas «for food production, the sustainability of the primary sector and territorial balance».

The opinion justifies the refusal also invoking «the lack of a proposal and evaluation of alternatives to the site»

«Other locations could not be evaluated as possible locations, for example, closer to industrial facilities» that are expected to supply energy or that do not involve removing wooded vegetation, the resolution says.

The opinion also calls for a higher level of specification on the affected wooded area or on how it intends to «replace» or compensate this forest mass. It is also said that «the landscape integration measures are not specified to comply with the landscape guidelines» of the current regulations.

City Council endorses the suitability of the site and the public interest of promoting renewable energy

The decision of the Govern has caused an important commotion among the supporters of the promotion of renewable energies and in the entities promoting the declaration of a climate emergency in Catalonia.

All these sectors thought that the obstacles that systematically impede the promotion of renewable sources would disappear with the new implementation decree approved by the Catalan government last year. But it has not been that way.

The aforementioned decree created a paper in charge of processing these requests through the emergency route.
