Rome, March 26 - Twenty-seven municipalities in
Italy source all the power needed to meet their residential
electricity and heating needs from renewable sources,
Legambiente said on Tuesday.
First among equals is Prato allo Stelvio in the northern
autonomous province of Bolzano, according to the environmental
watchdog's 2013 Renewable Municipalities report.
Here ''the management of networks and power plants ensures
that members of the cooperative pay 27% less for electricity and
62% less for heating than the Italian average'', Legambiente
said.
In total 2,400 municipalities source all their electricity
from renewable sources.
Further 7,937 - 97% of the total - make some use of solar
power.
Casaletto di Sopra in the province of Cremona (Lombardy)
and Don in the province of Trento (Trentino-Alto Adige) have the
highest number of plants per inhabitant respectively for
photovoltaic and solar thermal systems.
Wind power is used in 571 municipalities, with a combined
installed capacity of 8,703 MW and a combined production in 2012
of 3,1 Twh, enough to meet the energy needs of over 5.2 million
families.
Instead 1,053 municipalities use small-scale hydroelectric
power generation to produce electricity and 369 use geothermics
for power and heating supplies.
Last but not least 1,494 municipalities use biomass energy
to meet their energy needs, the report said.
