A commitment to future generations
Thanks to more than 50 million kWh generated annually by our renewable energy plants, we avoid emissions into the atmosphere more than 25,000 tonnes of CO2, providing renewable green energy for around 50,000 people.
It is our active contribution to reducing the impact of activities on the ecosystem by combating climate change.
How we work
Environmental protection begins with the design and execution of renewable production plants in order to reduce soil consumption by integrating the construction in continuity with the neighbouring plant landscape. In the design of a photovoltaic plant in a rural area, we foresee the use of point foundations and removable to preserve the permeability of the soil by preserving the natural biological cycles.
The positioning of the modules follows the contours of the landscape by means of curved installations. The construction is designed to minimise the visual impact on the natural and agricultural environment.
Accessibility to facilities
For the accessibility of the facilities, we use a network of existing inter-park roads, using drainage paving for the paths.
Flora and fauna
The growth of grass and, therefore the same degree of permeability and solar radiation towards the ground is preserved by the spacing of the photovoltaic rows minimising the incidence on the ground, allowing the passage of local fauna and not interfering with the growth of spontaneous flora. The perimeter fences of the plants are raised from the ground leaving adequate space for fauna to pass.
In the spring and summer months, we carry out scheduled landscaping, cutting grass to prevent potential fires, without the use of chemical weed-killers.
Along most of the plant fences, rows of shrubs and trees in full growth are safeguarded, so that they can serve as a shelter for the local microfauna while preserving ecological functionality. Planting elements are carefully positioned according to the landscape layout and texture, respecting the presence of isolated trees and avoiding that portions of the perimeter land remain uncultivated.
Recovery and disposal
Another aspect on which we pay great attention is the recovery of end-of-life materials, in particular photovoltaic panels. For this reason, the company is in contact with the main consortia for the re-use of photovoltaic panels.
We pursue the objectives of the Kyoto Protocol by promoting the reduction and improvement of the impact of company activities on the environment. By applying the best available technologies, we support the development of our activities on a daily basis, enhancing the value of eco-resources and preserving natural assets such as water, soil and air for future generations.
