The PP says Totana special electricity tariff for agriculture will give a respite to the sector in the region (18/03/2014)

Totana The PP states that the application of a special regional electricity tariff for agriculture and agribusiness requested by the parliamentary group on Wednesday within the Regional Assembly "give a respite to the industry,"

According to the PP, the agricultural sector suffers an injustice since 2008 when the Socialist government in 2008 abolished the special rates for irrigation.

The special rate for power is, according to PP, a demand for the sector and benefit application in Murcia over 500,000 farmers and workers in horticulture.

In both sectors, the electricity costs account for between 35 and 40 percent of total costs in the sector, "that must be addressed throughout the entire year even though consumption is seasonal."

This, according to PP, a burden that the regional government will ease the implementation of the specific rate.

In Spain there is a total of 3.2 million hectares of irrigated land, accounting for 16 percent of total cultivated land, generating 55 percent of the total agricultural production of the country.


The demand of the Popular Group takes shape in five points, which meet the demands of the agricultural sector.

Are the reduction in VAT, the tariff adjustment to the real power they recorded, ie, the one used as the theoretical contracted, and the ability to sign more than one contract per year, ie annual one with a stated minimum power supply for basic maintenance of equipment and other season for the months of maximum consumption, ie the irrigation season.

In addition, farmers claim that irrigation can generate electricity for self, as happens in other European countries and special or reduced rate for companies horticultural manipulated, since, as pointed, "the current rates do not match the specificities and needs of the sector, making the Spanish agriculture less competitive compared to other countries.
