In Covides we continue working on an environmental management system to develop our activity in the most sustainable way possible, taking advantage of renewable natural resources.
In this sense, during the month of January, another photovoltaic plant has been started up at the winery in Vilafranca del Penedès.
The photovoltaic plant is located on the roofs of the existing warehouses and its location is an excellent place for the exploitation of solar energy.
Some 215 photovoltaic panels have been installed with an installed power of 125 kWp and an estimated annual production of 160,851 kWh. In environmental terms, this is equivalent to planting some 24 hectares of trees or a reduction of 63000000 kg of CO2.
We continue to make the energy transition to our cooperative.
