Offshore windfarms planned for the Canaries

The Councillor for Industry, Trade and New Technologies on the Canary Islands, Marisa Tejador, has revealed that her department is looking at placing generating windmills off shore.

She said that more research was needed, but that there were possibilities off the coast of Fuerteventura in particular, but also off Lanzarote, El Hierro and Tenerife.

She also admitted that the islands had come late to the concept of alternative energy.
