The development of certain sectors in Bigastro has been severely hampered by the lack of an electricity supply.
Yesterday, the mayor, Teresa Belmonte, signed an agreement with a representative of Iberdrola to provide a supply to sectors D-6 and D-10 and then later to sectors D-2, D-3, D-4 and D-5.
The important point is that, the existing infrastructure cannot cope with demand which is why we still have the occasional power cut. By upgrading the system, we should hopefully enjoy a better service.
The other important point is that the cost of this development to the town has been reduced from the original 2.5 million euro agreement in 2007 to the amended sum of 525,000 euros in 2009 and now it will only cost the town 172,000 euros of which 70,000 has already been paid.
