Surtigas, a subsidiary of Promigas, and the Caribe Plaza Shopping Center inaugurated a solar plant that will generate 1.4 million kWh/year.
The investment in this plant exceeded CoP$3.8B, La Republica reported.
The total investment in this project is CoP$19B. The Canal del Dique Solar Park will achieve savings of close to 30% on the energy consumption required by the Shopping Center.
The project will also avoid the emission of approximately 740 tons of CO2 per year, equivalent to the absorption capacity of 90 hectares of forest.
“Solar generation is part of the strategic goals of Caribe Plaza, aiming at clean, renewable and unlimited energies, thus diversifying our electrical matrix, with the commissioning of a megawatt of electrical power,” Cesar Guerra, Manager of Caribe Plaza, said.
