Havana.- The increase in the use of renewable sources of energy is part of the Cuban strategy to promote alternatives to oil and gas.
In this sense, the construction of biogas plants stands out in the eastern province of Holguín where 50 such facilities will be completed by the end of 2012.
It is important to mention that about 19 plants are currently working in the territory, 16 more are at different construction stages and the others will be started in the next few months.
This program was started in Holguín in 2010, where it found a significant potential at the coffee pulping plants, pig farms, the brewing plant and cattle fattening farms, among others.
According to specialists, the abovementioned potentials, as well as others being studied, would represent the electricity expenses of about 24,270 houses.
