Gran Canaria has multiple wind farms strategically distributed across the Island
Most visitors only see the turbines as they travel south from the airport to Maspalomas however there are other locations that also employ giant turbines, solar power collection and geothermal exploration projects
Some of the Gran Canaria locations where renewable energy and sustainable development are underway include the following.
North-west coast - St Nicholas and Agaete
Maspalomas- Dunes and Beach
Wind Farm at Aringa
Volcanics - Pico de Galdar and Montanon Negro area
Central caldera - Santa Lucia

The power generation industry is somewhat of a marvel for visitors to Gran Canaria.
They wonder how does such a small remote Island cope with millions of extra visitors and the demand they place on the local grid.
