Consell seeks volunteers to instal energy meters and form energy communities

The Office of Environment of the Consell de Formentera is working to implement two energy communities on the island. This initiative is part of VPP4 Islands, a project enlisting technological innovation to promote renewable energies in Europe, and one which Formentera joined in 2020. To continue developing the project, an information session is scheduled for Friday 31 March at 5.00pm in the Consell de Formentera conference room (Sala d'Actes, Plaça de la Constitució, 1).

For phase one of this project, the Consell is seeking volunteers from across the island to instal energy meters at homes and businesses. Installation is completely free of charge and will make it possible to track energy consumption with a smart-phone app. Participants need only commit to share the data that devices collect.

The info session will also serve to explain to attendees that they can be part of the energy communities that will be created with VPP4 Islands funding.

Antoni Tur, environment councillor, encouraged local homeowners and businesses to participate in the test, calling it "a chance to advance in renewable energy use and production and raise awareness among islanders".
