He has made this clear after meeting with the candidate for the presidency of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, Conchi Monzón, and with the president of the Aeolian Association of the Canary Islands (Aeolican), Rafael Martell.
In this way, during the meeting the commitment of the purple formation was addressed to turn Spain into a vanguard country in what the generation of clean energies refers to with the so-called 'Green Horizon Plan'.
This initiative, based on a Bill presented by Podemos in July 2018 in Congress, aims to "decarbonize the economy in two decades," foreseeing a decline in the price of the electricity bill of up to 50 % in relation to its current price, which would mean an average saving for families of about 400 euros per year.
In addition, Pita noted that through measures such as "the increase in public investment in the generation of renewable energy to reach 2.5 percent of GDP," it is estimated that there will be "an exponential increase in the number of jobs related with R + D + i, which would help to combat job insecurity in a country that, in two decades, could be at the level of power in the production of clean energy such as Sweden or Finland.
CANARY ISLANDS IN THE CENTER OF THE PLAN
Meanwhile, Monzón said that at the center of this Plan is the Canary Islands, "the territory with the best conditions in the entire State to lead this transition, given the amount of renewable sources of energy available to us, including the use of force wind, solar, tidal and geothermal ".
"Faced with this reality - he continued - it is unacceptable that the islands do not lead this transition and, what is even more worrisome, that the Government of the Canary Islands falsifies the data that measure the implementation of this alternative to the use of fossil fuels".
