The Ortuella City Council continues with a firm step on its path of continuous improvement in environmental sustainability and working on the production of energy for own consumption. The last phase of this legislature has been Project Award for the installation of solar panels on the roof of the Otxartaga school, These solar panels with an output capacity of about one hundred kilowatts will generate clean and efficient energy. This green energy will be used for self-consumption, which means that Will supply public buildings located within a radius of two kilometers, Beneficiaries of this initiative include the Otxartga school itself, the Haureskola, the municipal pediment, the school service building, Areto Gorbia, the sports center, the swimming pool, the kiln, the soccer field and the town hall.

The new solar plant has 250 solar modules that will cover an area of approximately 1,300 square metres.
