A rewarded volontarist stance

Since 2003, Pouzols unhabitants can observe the 9 wind turbines of Oupia running. Following the same objective of increasing renewables in the energy production mix, Pouzols local council has been backing the wind park extension on his territory at « Le Pech » and « Lous Rocs ».
