The administration of La Laguna has issued a new wink to the promotion of electromobility in its territory with the 90% bonus of the Tax on Constructions, Installations and Works (ICIO) to those who decide to place approved recharging points.

In this context, Mayor Luis Yeray Gutiérrez acknowledges that the initiative «seeks to reduce the tax burden on families in La Laguna and, in turn, to encourage the implementation of renewable energies in the territory».

Also, all this revolves around the various actions that the islands are taking to alleviate the international context that today befalls Europe, trying to give energy efficiency at the local level.

«There are several decisions taken, especially since the beginning of the health crisis, to reduce the tax burden and provide greater facilities to citizens when it comes to dealing with taxes and duties,» says the mayor in this regard.

In addition, it is stressed that this is part of a commitment made by this government team since the beginning of the mandate.

At that time the climate emergency was declared in the municipality, and since then we have been working to move towards a sustainable and environmentally friendly economic and social model.

Clean energies play a fundamental role in this objective, but the deployment of all the necessary infrastructure for their production requires investment.

Therefore, to contribute to the disbursement and thus stimulate the entry of renewables in the territory, the councilman of Finance and Economic Affairs, Alejandro Marrero, puts in value the green bonuses promoted from the area.

In this way, how novelty is known the reduction of the quota of ICIO. Through this, they will give «an incentive to individuals and entities that are committed to electric mobility».

Electric cabs
