The mayor said that "the PSOE wants to load everything that is good for Lorca and torpedoes. They are becoming a party renegón, which all good things bother him. If they were, or Noksel or university, or energy solar, took us back to the stone age "
Lorca's mayor, Francisco Jodar has responded to criticism by the Socialist Party against the construction of a solar power plant in our town that "there is so blind as those who will not see."
The mayor has stated further that these statements are particularly unfortunate Ferra and ignorant, since they already bought land (and keep buying) to the location of this infrastructure. "
Jódar Francisco calls the PSOE of "obstructionist and renegón" and considered "irresponsible" attitude of Diego Ferra, who advised not to see this investment as "a problem for their political interests, but as a" factor of progress "for Lorca.
The mayor said that "the PSOE wants to load everything that is good for Lorca. They are becoming a party renegón, which all good things bother him. If they were, or Noksel or university, or solar energy, we brought back to the stone age "
Jodar said that the PSOE considers this investment as a "problem" ahead of the elections, a fact that has been considered as "selfish and crazy", so Diego Ferra has recommended to "be loyal to Lorca", rather than go "sowing doubts without any basis."
In any case, Francisco Jodar said that "if the PSOE does not help in this matter, let them, because we will proceed with his introduction, which will create hundreds of jobs. We managed to bring Noksel and Now do the same with solar power plant Europe's largest. These investments create jobs, the doubts of the PSOE, certainly do not create anything good. "
The mayor has stated that "the PSOE is upset that Lorca receive investment. Noksel also refused to come to Lorca and its facilities are conducted at the site of Saprelorca. The Socialist Party has been radicalized and was anchored in the filibuster, everything looks wrong, she's always grumpy and renegón. They are for anything but to work. Diego Ferra want to move the pessimism of the PSOE to our city, but while Lorca receives investments and advances, Ferra is stalling the PSOE.
On the technical data cited by Ferra in his criticism this morning, Francisco Jodar has confirmed that "everything is well tied and bound," Ferra advising Diego to review what transpired in the presentation of the project and the resolution published in the Bulletin Official Murcia on 10 December, "we hope that this will clarify the ideas."
A project that creates jobs and attracts money
Solar power plant to be built in Lorca is the largest production facility of this type of energy currently planned in the world capable of generating electricity to power 200,000 homes.
The photovoltaic solar power plant of 400 megawatts (MW) also stands out because thanks to R & D and economies of scale will be able to produce electricity under normal, ie non-primate, and once completed and operation will generate 590 direct jobs, which must be added the synergies of indirect jobs generated.
The plant will be developed in four phases.
The first will have an investment of 114 million euros and will need a thousand workers for the launch of the first phase of 40 MW of power, the second will be 50 MW at a cost of 142 million and employ 1,300 people.
The last two are most important, 150 and 160 MW respectively, investments of more than 425 million euros and 3,000 workers need for their development and implementation.
This initiative stems from the joint work of the Ministry with the business group, which together with the outstanding weather and solar radiation in the region for solar energy production and industrial development and regional research in this sector have Andaltia led to opt for Murcia to other options.
Andaltia with the participation of regional firms in the construction, installation, maintenance and operation of the proposed Lorca, as well as on the ground that the group developed in New Mexico and other future projects, such as those related to Solar Plan Mediterranean, driven by the European Union to build 20 GW of solar PV in Northern Africa.
The synergies generated by the development of the draft Lorca, for which the business group has already reached an agreement with the owners of the 800 acres it needs for its implementation, and use the region as a platform for projects in North Africa has generated a number of companies have shown interest and willingness to build factories in the region.
In fact, companies like SunPower, SunTech and Schneider Electric are in advanced negotiations with Andaltia to work together in the Region of Murcia.
Andaltia expects to complete the conceptual development of the plant and have the administrative authorizations, which the Community makes a mediating role in the earliest possible date to begin construction in 2013.
In fact, the Ministry has already held meetings with the Ministry of Industry and Spanish Red Electrica, who have shown interest in the degree of innovation involved, as well as its social and economic benefits.
At the conclusion of the construction of the four phases of the investment project in renewables, the power Lorca can generate clean electricity consumption of 200,000 households, avoiding the emission of 572,893 tons of carbon dioxide and the use of 200,000 tons oil equivalent (toe) per year, which would be necessary to produce this electricity.
Currently, the Region of Murcia has an installed capacity of photovoltaic solar energy more than 300 megawatts of power, which is leading the national production area installation.
