ENERGY poverty has been highlighted as a cause for concern by the Territory, Energy and Mobility department of the Balearic Islands. The authority has held a meeting at which they called on electricity companies to refrain from cutting off supply to needy families who prove they are unable to pay their bills.

The Autonomous Government has called for the action to prevent families being stranded with no heating or electricity in the midst of winter as the cold snap kicks in and is expected to last until March. Energy remains a key issue in wider Spanish politics as the larger companies continue to post enormous profits.
