overview

Since the start of the O&M activity in this solar project, Voltalia has been focused on ways to integrate our solar plant with the local economy to reduce and optimize costs, the possibility of using animals from local shepherd to control vegetation (horses, ponies, sheep and donkeys) helps Voltalia saving about 60% of the cost of cutting the vegetation.

NOTE: Voltalia has this approach in approximately 60% of our solar parks in Portugal, always depending on the existence of local partners.

Coruche solar park is an example of how technology and nature can harmoniously coexist.

More than 20 animals present in this solar park help our technicians to maintain control of vegetation and reduce CO2 emissions caused using machinery.
