homes with clean energy
tons of CO2 avoided annually
The Cacao power plant produces electricity from the combustion of wood waste locally sourced from forestry operations and neighboring sawmills. Its production will cover the consumption of approximately 16,000 people and come as a substitution to conventional diesel installations. It has therefore a very positive carbon footprint: 28.500 tons of CO2 avoided each year.
The project also contributed to the creation of up to 105 direct and indirect jobs during the construction phase and enable to consolidate the activity of local suppliers in the forestry and agricultural sector, while creating 40 jobs.
The design, construction and operation-maintenance of the plant are fully managed in-house by Voltalia.
