Photovoltaic Plant

We invest in sustainable energy.

The Adventure Park's Photovoltaic Plant

As part of our Sustainability Policy, which is supported by processes of continuous improvement and innovation, conserving natural resources and those of future generations, we constantly seek the best solutions to boost efficiency.

Hence, we realized early on that we could enhance the areas of the Adventure Park with limited access for recreational use, with a view to use it for the installation of photovoltaic panels.

This project involves a mini-generation plant based on photovoltaic technology, which maximizes the use of solar energy for the decentralized generation of electrical energy. This plant comprises 1,200 photovoltaic panels with a power output of 230Wp, covering an area of around 4,800m2..

Through the production of electricity, the photovoltaic mini-generation ensures the financial sustainability of the system, and contributes towards achieving the goals set in the ENE (National Energy Strategy) 2020. We estimate the reduction of emissions to be 174 tons of CO2e/year, corresponding to a forest sequestration of 17,400 trees.

Since it began operating at the beginning of June 2013, and until the end of 2019, we produced 2,159MWh of electricity, corresponding to the prevention of around 1,015 tonnes of CO2e emissions (emissions calculated according to Order no. 17313/2008). On average, the plant produces around 325MWh per year, equating to the total electrical consumption of around 100 households.

The Composting Plant's Photovoltaic Plant

In order to continue the success of the first photovoltaic plant, in cooperation with Hidurbe and Endesa, we promoted the installation of a Photovoltaic Production Unit for Personal Consumption (UPAC) in the Composting Plant, covering a significant part of this unit.

We installed 2,200 high-performance panels, covering an area of around 5,400m2 with an installed capacity of 748kWp. The estimated annual electricity production is around 1.1GWh, which is primarily intended for the Plant's own consumption. This renewable electricity production equates to the annual consumption of around 275 families, and we estimate that this prevents approximately 518 tons of CO2 equivalent per year.
At the same time, we expect a surplus of around 40,000kWh to be injected into the Grid as clean and renewable energy. With the creation of this Photovoltaic Production Unit for Personal Consumption, Endesa, Hidurbe and LIPOR joined forces for a common goal, where future energy is clean, more efficient and more sustainable.

With this project, we have increased the production of electrical energy through renewable sources, from 372MWh to 1,472MWh, corresponding to a reduction of around 692 tons of CO2e/year.
