We are opting for generating our own photovoltaic energy to avoid emitting nearly 87,500 tonnes of CO2.
An agreement was recently signed between Gomà-Camps, financier Recap Energy and solar engineering firm Quantica Renovables for the construction, operation and maintenance of a rooftop photovoltaic installation at GCC.
Solar engineering firm Quantica Renovables is to be responsible for setting up the photovoltaic installation and providing technical support for the switch to generating our own power. Start-up of the installation is planned for early 2023.
This self-consumption installation divided between the roof and the ground will be one of the biggest anywhere in Spain, with 5 MWp of power installed, meeting 25% of our total demand for electricity. With a total of 9,166 modules, the photovoltaic plant will take up 45,000 m2 of roof space at the industrial plant, and it will generate more than 8 million kWh a year of renewable energy, avoiding emissions of over 87,000 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere over the next 25 years.
Avoiding emissions of more CO2 into the environment is a great success for Gomà-Camps. Starting up the new photovoltaic installation to generate our own power with technology that does not emit CO2 enables us to achieve our aim of reducing our dependence on other energy sources and switch to cleaner power. This installation, one of the biggest in Spain, is a further step forward in our commitment to caring for the planet and people through sustainable business growth. Moreover, this major project has a special impact in terms of Sustainable Development Goals 12 and 7, targets Gomà Camps has set itself as a corporation.
