Tolima’s International High Technology Clinic (Clinaltec) bet on renewable energies, thanks to the installation of 380 of Celsia’s rooftop solar panels.
Celsia arrived in Ibague (Tolima), with the installation of 380 polycrystalline panels, Inteligencia Petrolera said.
This photovoltaic system will generate approximately 150MWh/year, supplying 20% of Clinaltec’s energy consumption through clean energies, and contributing to the environment, as it will reduce emissions by 56 tons of CO2 per year.
“Without a doubt, Tolima is a region where we will continue to grow with our energy efficiency portfolio. We are providing solutions to help our clients’ competitiveness and self-sufficiency processes,” said Celsia’s Commercial leader, Luis Vélez.
Mario Páramo, architect of Clinaltec, described the alliance as “significant”, saying that it is the union between the clinic’s care for the community, and now, for its care of the environment.
“Having Celsia helping us in this process was key. Its knowledge and experience helped us move forward and see that it is possible to take advantage of solar energy in our facilities, because we are a clinic with high energy consumption equipment,” he said.
In the course of 2019, Celsia will also start installing solar panels on three of the roofs of the Mercacentro supermarket chain, and a solar floor at the Playa Hawaii recreation center, in Ibagué.
“Renewable energies will continue to grow in Ibagué, contributing to the progress and development of the capital of Tolima,” Vélez concluded.
Celsia reached 100MW of clean and renewable energies this year, making it a leading company in the implementation of such initiatives in Colombia and Central America.
Bottom-line: We like to report on the corporate profiles of companies that are helping boost Colombia’s energy market.
The fact that smaller cities started their energy transition process is definitely good news for both the sector and the country.
