Last Friday, it was celebrated the opening of the new installation of photovoltaic solar plant in the deck of the pavilion 'Mateo Caballero' that it will mean a energy save for the municipality of Bullas, besides other benefits such as a creation of a 'Energy Bank' or 'Solar Bank' which it will be managed by Social Services office.
This project of energy saving was a proposal in the Municipal Budget of last year that it was made by Francisco Espín, manager of Efficiency Services Consulting of Bullas. The citizens of Bullas chose this project, according the explications of the Major María Dolores Muñoz who expressed her pride of this selection that it will supposed social and environmental benefits to the town.  

"We are glad today with the opening of the new installation of a photovoltaic solar plant that has several benefits and objectives. One objective is to reduce the emissions of CO2, and other, is social, trying to palliate the energy poverty" said the Major. The workers from the office of Social Services will manage compensating the energy and money save to families that need them most.  

Last December began the construction of this installation that it cost 13.020€, being 9.972€ part of the municipal budget. With this photovoltaic generator we can reduce to 7.152 kWh from the 15.482 kWh that it was consumed by Social Services per year. So, around 2.000€ it will be save which it is the electric consume of two families.
