ALMANZORA councils are doing their bit to encourage the use of less contaminating vehicles.
Seven local authorities have put in requests for European Regional Development Funds available through the Andalucia Energy Agency to go towards the cost of installing electric vehicle charge points.
The funding requests, which are being processed by the Almanzora Valley Tourism Business Association, correspond to Arboleas, Cantoria, Macael, Oria, Purchena, Bacares and Taberno.
The hope is that although not so many of the region’s residents drive electric vehicles, the availability of charge points will encourage visits from tourists who do.
Local authorities securing the funding will have to initially pay the full cost of installing the charge points themselves, which the tourism business association said totals some €10,000, but will then receive a subsidy for 70 per cent.
