The Government of El Hierro reported this week that its commitment to clean energy is paying off, as in July it broke previous records and for 18 consecutive days, 100% of its energy needs were produced by the hydroelectric power station of Gorona del Viento.

Therefore, the average energy consumption of July saw 95.9% contribution of renewable energy, and sets a new record for the island.
