municipalities to energy cooperatives based on the use of renewables.

In this sense, the Valencian spokesman, Juan Cardona has commented that "it is necessary to address a regulation of the energy market, but we know at the state level it is difficult due to the existence of revolving doors of ministers towards electricity and energy". To which he added that "we need to take the initiative
from Xàbia to promote cooperative communities of renewable energies to lower costs of both electricity and water ”.

In addition, Cardona recalled that “the City Council has a very important remnant and we are also going to receive a lot of funds from Europe. It is the perfect time to reduce costs to citizens, guarantee stability in the
price and start the energy transition at the municipal level ”.

To these words has been added Vicent Colomer who has pointed out that “Spain is at the tail end of solar energy production while it is one of the areas with the most hours of sunshine a year. It is not understood that exaggerated rates are charged to people when we could generate much cheaper energy ”.
