Wind Energy for Sustainable Development

Las Tunas, January 22 (RHC-Granma)-- The exhaustion of fossils fuels, fluctuations in their prices on the world market, and their environmental impact are some of the key reasons that the need to develop renewable energy sources is of concern internationally. 

Cuba is not exempt from these issues and is intensifying efforts to gradually move toward alternatives that are more efficient, economical, and environmentally friendly. Most well known in the country are the many photovoltaic solar parks being erected, but on the northern coast of Las Tunas a different, very ambitious project is underway. 

La Herradura-1 (LH1) and La Herradura-2 (LH2), are two eolic power parks in an unprecedented complex that, thanks to the power of the winds in this region and Chinese technology, will generate around 101 megawatt (MW) of electricity, and contribute to reaching the national goal of generating 24% of the country's power with renewable resources by 2030.
