The Government of Cantabria supports the creation of the wind power farm that the Biocantaber company intends to install in the Sierra del Escudo with an investment of 114 million euros.

Cantabria has set as priority the development of wind energy projects in the region and has guaranteed “maximum agility” in the processing of the same, “complying at all times with all technical and environmental precautions”, in order to strengthen “safety legal status and the tranquility of citizens “.

Martín and Blanco have highlighted the interest of the regional Executive and the operators to carry out this type of action in the region, giving the Government “top priority to the issue” and existing “a willingness for Cantabria to rise from once and for all to the world of renewable energy. “

They have also stressed that the projects remain in the Ministry of Industry “the essential time, hardly more than two months”, time in which it is necessary to verify “absolutely everything” to “not incur insecurities that give rise to these energy initiatives being look bad. “
