Endesa X, the energy services unit of Spanish utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE), has built a 976-kWp self-consumption solar photovoltaic (PV) system in Spain on behalf of the Balearic Islands government.
With a total of 2,750 solar panels, the solar array was built on the canopies of the car park of the Mateu Orfila hospital, the company announced last week.
Covering an area of 15,000 sq m (161,458 sq ft), Endesa estimates the PV system will be capable of generating enough clean electricity to meet around 20% of the hospital's energy needs.
Over the course of one year, the solar array should be capable of generating some 1,214 MWh, enough to offset 932 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions annually.
Endesa X noted that the solar installation has been built after being secured in a tender called by the local government.
