Endesa X, the energy services unit of Spanish utility Endesa SA (BME:ELE), has launched a 1.4-MWp self-consumption solar photovoltaic (PV) system in Spain on behalf of self-adhesive label and envelope manufacturer TOMPLA.
With a total of 2,593 solar panels, the solar array was built on the roof of the main manufacturing plant and on the canopies of the car park at TOMPLA's factory in Alcala de Henares, Madrid.
Covering an area of 6,638 sq m (71,450 sq ft), Endesa estimates the PV system will be capable of generating enough clean electricity to meet around 16% of the factory's energy needs. Over the course of one year, TOMPLA should offset some 474 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Endesa noted that the solar array also includes an Energy Management Service (SGE) to allow the monitoring of the energy produced, consumption and savings.
