LOS VERDES COMMITMENT TO REDUCE EMISSIONS

These two bikes, which cost about 3,700 euros each, have a range of 60 kilometers

The mayor of Orihuela, Monserrate Guillen, who is also responsible for Public Safety, last week added two new electric scooters to the fleet of local police vehicles. These two bikes, which cost about 3,700 euros each, have a range of 60 kilometers and can reach a speed of 65 kilometers per hour.

They have a two year warranty and charging the battery takes between four to five hours. They also have LED lights and have additional energy-saving features that increase the range of the vehicle.

“Perhaps they are a little more expensive than normal combustion bikes, but the savings in greenhouse gas emissions and fuel make it worthwhile,” said the mayor. He added that he had already acquired, by “leasing”, two hybrid cars and an electric truck for parks maintenance

Another initiative aimed at reducing pollution is the signing of an agreement with Repsol to promote the use of LPG (liquid petroleum from reducing emissions). This agreement, which was signed by representatives of Guillén and energy firm, will adapt 14 vehicles from the city fleet to use LPG, which will be achieved by further reducing emissions.

“This is the commitment of the City Council in terms of energy efficiency and clean energy,” said the mayor.
