NECESSARY: Installing new charging points is “essential to reduce emissions”, commented Balearic Government Vice-President and Energy Transition regional minister
Juan Pedro Yllanes.
INCA now boasts 10 charging points for electric vehicles.
On Tuesday, Balearic Government Vice-President and Energy Transition regional minister
Juan Pedro Yllanes, Tourism and Employment regional minister Iago Negueruela and Inca Mayor Virgilio Moreno officially inaugurated two new points located at the town’s footwear museum.
The charging points were financed by ITS Sustainable Tourism Tax funds. The project included three other double installations in Inca, one at the indoor pool, one in Plaza d’es Bestiar and the third in Calle Jaume I, with a total cost of €28,000.
The town’s two other charging points are in Avenida Germanies.
“The installation of new charging points, both public and private, are necessary to fulfill the objectives of the Climatic Change Law approved a year ago”, commented Yllanes
“The road to electric mobility is essential to reduce emissions, and by making a sufficient number of charging points available to the public we are promoting this energy transition.”
Last year the Directorate General of Energy and Climatic Change subsidised the installation of more than 300 charge points in the Balearic Islands.
