December 18 (Renewables Now) - Disa Group, a major energy player on the Canary Islands, said on Monday it has connected to the grid 44 MW of wind capacity.
In all, this capacity consists of three parks, the Vera de Abote and Bermejo plants totalling 23.1 MW and the Icor wind farm with six wind turbines of 3.4 MW each. These are the company's first wind power facilities in the region, Disa pointed out.
Disa also has 20 MW in operational photovoltaic (PV) plants. These 64 MW of renewable power facilities help offset some 125,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions a year.
Through Disa Energia Electrica, the company sells the output of its renewable power plants to households, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large companies.
