Solar energy, as a sustainable and renewable source, is reshaping the industry, evident in the growing prevalence of photovoltaic panels on industrial rooftops. This energy does not only provide economic benefits, it also ensures a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable environment.
The conversion of solar radiation into electricity generates no waste, gas emissions, or liquid spills, making it one of the cleanest known forms of energy generation.
Photovoltaic panels for a sustainable future
Since 2021, we’ve ensured that 100% of the electricity used in our offices and production facilities comes from renewable sources, confirming our guarantee of origin certificate.
In addition, we have installed 1,790 photovoltaic modules on the rooftop of one of our industrial facilities. Which means that 15% of the electricity consumed in that building is generated through solar energy.
The transition from fossil energy sources to renewable sources is a vital process in ensuring a cleaner and safer energy future, aligning with our business sustainability strategy.
Benefits of installing photovoltaic panels
The installation of photovoltaic panels offers a wide range of economic advantages for both society and the environment.
Solar energy offers a constant and renewable energy source, enabling companies to reduce dependence on the electrical grid. This translates to reduced energy costs.
Moreover, governments around the world acknowledge the significance of sustainable practices. So much so that many offer incentives and subsidies to encourage the installation of photovoltaic panels.
The implementation of solar energy is a step towards building more sustainable communities. Generating energy and lowering carbon emissions promote a cleaner and healthier environment.
Moreover, the installation of solar panels extends beyond the factory by inspiring other companies to explore clean energy alternatives. This domino effect fosters a social shift towards an eco-friendlier lifestyle.
Generating electricity from fossil fuels is one of the main causes of carbon emissions and atmospheric pollutants, as that process releases significant quantities of greenhouse gases. Choosing solar energy contributes to reducing the carbon footprint and combating climate change. According to data from the National Markets and Competition Commission (Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia, CNMC), for each kWh produced by a photovoltaic system, 200 g less CO2 are released into the atmosphere.
In conclusion, installing photovoltaic panels is not just a business initiative, it demonstrates our dedication to environmental conservation, innovation, and a sustainable future.
It is just one more example of the vital role that sustainability plays at a strategic level within Aratubo and for all the companies in Grupo Arania.
