> Download the informative leaflet of the campaign of the Guerrilla Solar: plug in the Sun (in Catalan and Spanish).
A considerable number of Spanish councils have signed the Pacte dels Alcaldes (Pact of the Mayors) to pass the objectives established by the UE for 2020, reducing al least in a 20% the CO2 emissions in their territory, by implementing a Pla d'Accio per a l'Energia Sostenible (Plan for Sustainable Energy), in the areas in which they have responsibility. This compromise demands to draw up the mentioned Plan during the year after the official adhesion to the Pact.

Promoting Energetic Democracy at the town level
To promote energetic democracy at the town level the idea is to ask the Spanish councils to commit to promote and give easier access to the installation of small-scale solar photovoltaic installations in particular households, connected to the grid with the guaranteed and safe systems that the current renewable technologies permit.
Among the possibilities lies the boosting of legal tools to simplify the bureaucracy currently needed to install solar photovoltaic installations in households.
The campaign proposes a sample text to be proposed and approved in the Council's plenary session, in Spanish and Catalan .
The Councils who join the initiative will be included in the list of "Councils for Energetic Democracy".
