Trying to assimilate and expand power generation through the force of winds, Cuba will build three windfarms in 2077, for a gradual take off of that energy, according to government authorities.

Besides the installation opened in the Isle of Youth in February, 2007, another one is being built in the city of Gibara, in Holguin province northern coast, with six generators, while another station in that same province has been planned.

They three, together with the installation that is has been operating in Turiguano island since 1999, will modestly contribute in mid 2008, 11,7 megawatts, but feasibility studies are being carried out to reach higher levels of wind-driven generators in the future, they asserted.
