Gas Plants in Puerto La Union Accepted

The new mayor will maintain the ban on power plants using coal or bunker fuel, but accepted those running on clean energy.

Thursday, May 17, 2012

The new mayor of the municipality of La Union, Ezequiel Milla, has amended a decree prohibiting the installation of power plants that used coal, liquefied natural gas or any derivation of hydrocarbons as fuel, which was not conducive to investment in the city.

"It has to be modified. What I maintain categorically is not generating electricity using bunker fuel and coal. I do agree with the generation of clean energy such as solar, wind and gas," said Milla, who took over La Union municipal government on 1st May, after winning the elections under the ARENA banner in March reported Laprensagrafica.com.ni.

"One of my (election campaign) commitments is to bring investment to La Union and create jobs," said Milla.
