Restoration of wind-powered water pumps

Restoration of wind-pumps

On 5th June 2010, the Ministry for Gozo launched a second scheme for the restoration of wind-powered water pumps.  Through the first scheme held in 2009, the Ministry for Gozo supported the restoration of a total of nineteen wind-powered water pumps.

Persons eligible for this scheme were Gozo-residing owners of wind pumps who are either owners of agricultural or agri-tourism land or registered farmers.  This scheme was also extended to those who are not registered as farmers and whose land is not used for economical purposes.
