The wind farms will be located in the municipality of San Sebastián de la Gomera, will come into operation in 2022 and will be equipped with Enercon E-82 E4 wind turbines. Ecoener expects to start work at the end of the summer, "taking into account the wind conditions in the area". The Galician company estimates that they will produce enough electricity to meet the demand of almost 11,000 homes, "exceeding the island's current demand" and that they will avoid the emission of more than 23,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. Ecoener already has 81 MW in production in the Canary Islands and plans to install another 47 MW in the coming months (including the 12 MW in La Gomera), to reach a total of 128 MW by the end of the year. According to the statement released, since 2020, the group's investments in the Canary Islands amount to 85 million euros, and "in 2022 alone, the planned investments in all the Canary Islands wind farms amount to 38.7 million euros".
The presentation ceremony of the twelve megawatt wind project, held yesterday in San Sebastián de La Gomera, was attended by the President of the Canary Islands, Ángel Víctor Torres, together with the Minister for Ecological Transition, Fight against Climate Change and Territorial Planning, José Antonio Valbuena; the President of the Cabildo of La Gomera, Casimiro Curbelo, and the Mayor of San Sebastián de La Gomera, Adasat Reyes, among other authorities and representatives of the island's business and social organizations.
Ecoener is active in 10 countries in Europe, America and Africa. In America, the Galician multinational renewable energy group is developing projects in the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Panama, among other countries. At present, it declares a "portfolio of assets in Spain" consisting of 7 hydroelectric plants, 13 photovoltaic plants and 9 wind farms. The company has announced that it plans to invest more than 212 million euros throughout 2022 (51.8 million in 2021), "of which 70.7 million correspond to projects with a commercial operation date throughout 2023".
