Project Ergal | March 24th, 2008

This is a project to develop renewable energy sources on the four inhabited islands of Baltra, Isabela, Floreana and Santa Cruz. This will involve wind turbines but more importantly solar energy. Baltra is one of the sunniest places in Galapagos being in the lee of Santa Cruz. The plan involves installing an underground cable to take the power to Santa Cruz, the most populated island. The plan is partly funded GEF, G8 and Cooperacion Alemana among others.
