Iberdrola and its local partner Inversiones Financieras Isla de Tenerife (IFIT) have inaugurated the Chimiche II wind farm, their first wind farm project in the Canaries. The event was attended by the President of the Canaries Government, Fernando Clavijo; the President of Tenerife council, Carlos Alonso Rodríguez and the Mayor of Granadilla de Abona, José Domingo Regalado.

The wind farm has a capacity of 18.3 MW and did cost over 25 million euros. During construction over 200 people have been working on the wind farm which supplies 15,000 homes with clean energy and avoides the emission of 33,000 tonnes of CO2.

The project has included the construction of the outgoing electricity cable and a transformer sub-station which has necessitated a complex feat of engineering to construct the electrical infrastructure over difficult terrain with a multitude of river beds.

"Projects turned into reality like this new Chimiche II wind farm are a sign of the commitment in the Canary Islands to a future that is already here in the field of clean energy, a resource that makes us better as a territory and as a society. The commitment of the Canaries Government to the development of renewable energy in the Archipelago has involved the effort and concerted commitment of all the agents involved, who have played a vital role" explained Fernando Clavijo, President of the Canaries.

“Canaries has a high potential for the development of renewables: it has good wind and solar resources and flexible demand potential. These conditions, combined with the significant reduction in the costs of renewable technology that make it competitive, the creation of quality employment, the industrial and economic boost and the positive impact that clean energy has on citizens and tourism, represent an opportunity to consider speeding up investment plans for renewables in the islands", commented Ángeles Santamaría, CEO of Iberdrola España.
