Havana, Oct 24 (RHC) Cuba is assembling seven illustrative photovoltaic parks as part of its strategy to use renewable energy sources.
Aleisly Valdes, director for Renewable Energy of the Electricity Association (UNE), told ACN that these facilities will make it possible to
increase the contribution to the National Energy System by 10 megawatts.
Many of these parks, still under construction, have synchronized units with the National Energy System and arealready contributing electricity. These include the provinces of Guantánamo (Santa Teresa-Los Güiros), Camagüey (Guáimaro), Villa Clara (Santa Clara) and Cienfuegos (Cantarrana).
The provinces of Santiago de Cuba, the Isle of Youth and Havana are also included in this investment program aimed at reducing the use of fossil fuels and protecting the environment, said Valdes.
The director pointed out that the radiation rate of the sun in Cuba is higher when compared with that of many other countries, due to the
island's geographic location.
