cotillo wind turbines

Wind Turbines in El Cotillo??
I recently read on the other forum, a comment about the Wind Turbines beyond Lajares and near to the new Autovia.  It also mentioned that there were to be two further Turbines "in the tourist areas of El Cotillo".

Anyone heard anything?  Location?  Dates??

I remember reading (Onda, possibly) something about one or a couple of new turbines being installed in Puerto del Rosario, nothing about El Cotillo.

I read a report on a meeting of the La Oliva council the other day that stated categorically that the project to put wind turbines out near the lighthouse at El Cotillo had been turned down. They also said they regretted that the previous authority had allowed the Lajares ones and that any future ones would have to be grouped near existing ones such as at Corralejo desalination plant, where the infrastructure already existed instead of burdening the countryside with more pylons etc. and spoiling the beautiful views.

I noticed one had been erected near the Puerto del Rosario desalination plant when I was in Puerto today. I believe that one only provides about 25% of that desal plant requirements!
