The Spanish government last month authorised the construction of three new wind farms on the Canary Island archipelago. The plants, to be developed by Unelco Reunidas and Made Renovable, subsidiaries of the Endesa utility, will go up in Fuencaliente on La Palma, Arico, on Tenerife and Aguimes on Gran Canaria.

The Canary Islands has a government imposed ceiling for wind power of 200 MW.
