Scheme for the Restoration of Wind-powered Water Pumps
The Ministry for Gozo, as the competent Ministry for the administration of the island, has been entrusted with the implementation of the eco-island vision for Gozo. This vision is based on the target of achieving high sustainable development standards for the island, while ensuring that Gozo’s tangible and intangible heritage is protected and is made to play a significant role in the island’s social, economic, environmental and cultural development.
One such manner in which this may be achieved is the active promotion and valorization of traditional sustainable practices. The application of wind-powered water pumps in agricultural tenements is one such example.
This aid scheme is intended to valorize this practical and traditional application of renewable energy utilization and promote it as a traditional sustainable application which is still valid. The scheme is intended to subsidise the re-instatement of existing wind-powered water pumps present on agricultural tenements in Gozo.
