The crises linked to the high costs of oil and environmental pollution have led to think about the large-scale use of systems that use renewable energy sources, as a measure to mitigate these impacts. In Cuba there are more than 10,000 installations that take advantage of renewable sources using different technologies, these are of small format; but also there are conditions of a renewable potential distributed throughout the national territory, which allows us to continue introducing these practices in a larger scale and format. The work deals, with the possibilities offered by the use of the potential of the renewable energy source as a measure of economic savings and reduction of disaster risks, exposing the need to link the facilities that take advantage of these resources, with the stability of the energy services for the confrontation of natural disasters and for exceptional situations, in addition to the rescue of certain energetic cultural traditions, which can help in the formation of social habits of efficiency and austerity in consumption, propitiating the reduction of the associated environmental impacts and the promulgation of a legal norm that protects and orders the penetration of renewable sources in the national energy matrix.
