Iberdrola cut the supply of electricity to La Paz school in January, The reason given was that Bigasto owed about 120,000 to the electricity company. They also cut the supply to the sports centre and to La Pedrera. Since then electricity had been supplied by diesel generators much to the consternation of the parents of the children.
Now it seems that Iberdrola and the town hall have come to an agreement about a calendar of payments that will clear the debt – over half has already been paid. The mayor, Raúl Valerio Medina therefore hopes that the company will restore mains power to the school before the end of the week and to the Pedrera and the sports centre before the end of the month.
