Eastern Cuban Wind Farms Produce More Than 21,000 Megawatts in Three Years

HOLGUIN, Cuba, Feb 28 (acn) The two wind farms in the municipality of
Gibara, in the eastern Cuban province of Holguin, contributed with
21,000 megawatts to the National Electric System, in three years of
functioning.

The director of the National Electric System, Jose Pifferer, told ACN
that this contribution saved the Cuban economy more than 4,000 oil tons,
taking into account that these two wind farms produce nine megawatts per
hour.

It also played a part in ceasing to emit to the atmosphere more than
15,000 cubic meters of toxic gases, which benefits the environment.

The Cuban program of energy generation from the wind has other two
facilities, with less generation capacity, located in the special
municipality of the Isle of Youth and in the central province of Ciego
de Avila.

Pifferer noted that the Gibara I, in Holguin, was severely damaged by
hurricane Ike, in September 2008; otherwise, these two farms could have
made a larger contribution.

The director of the Electric Company of Holguin, Hector Lugo, pointed
out that the project to use the energy of the wind began in the province
with the inauguration of Gibara I, on February 16, 2008, and expanded
recently with Gibara II.
