homes with clean energy
tons of CO2 avoided per year
Since the start of Voltalia’s O&M activity in this solar project, we have been focused on ways to integrate our solar plant with the local economy to reduce and optimize costs, and the possibility of using animals from local shepherds to control vegetation (horses, ponies, sheep and donkeys) helps Voltalia save about 60% of the cost of cutting the vegetation.
NOTE: Voltalia has taken 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.
The over 20 animals present in this solar park help our technicians control the vegetation and reduce the CO2 emissions caused by using machinery.
