production of solar energy plant built in Enercoop Crevillent (Alicante), avoiding the emission of over 7.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually into the atmosphere. The policy of introducing non-polluting energy that drives the firm crevillentina allows the Valencia and Spain forward in fulfilling the Kyoto Protocol, which obliges the international community to reduce emissions of gases that produce the so-called greenhouse effect.
The director general of Enercoop, Ildefonso Serrano, said that "part of our philosophy is to work for and by our partners, providing electricity cheaper, but environmentally responsible." Under the leadership of the maximum electric cooperative, 'it is vital that companies generating electricity also make an effort to avoid over-reliance of our country from exporting oil and other fossil fuels, while we concentrate on a future emission-free, clean and respects our environment.
Serrano said that Spain is in the lead in solar energy production in the world, thanks to companies like Enercoop bet as well as the 'excellent weather that meets our country in general and in particular Crevillent. The
recalled that the director general of El Huerto Solar Realengo that produce more than 8,000,000 kilowatt-hours annually will prevent the emission of 7590 pounds of CO2, 166,866 pounds of sulfur dioxides and another 25,284 pounds of nitrogen oxides, the substances most harmful to the environment, which cause more problems and most beneficial to the greenhouse effect. These amounts would be released into the atmosphere if instead of using solar energy proposal was to generate by burning fossil resin, oil or coal.
According to international agreements established through the entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol, Ireland has an allocation of 513.6 million tons, half of which relate to the utilities. The Valencian Community has a quota of 28.6 million tonnes for its industrial sector. The Solar Garden
, which covers an area of 120,000 square meters donated by the City of Crevillent on very favorable terms, does not emit gases, since solar energy does not produce any waste. In addition to the visual impact of this facility is zero, as the 23,520 solar panels are located at ground level, with a slight inclination to grab more solar radiation as possible.
The Orchard Solar Realengo has the approval of the City Council Crevillent, whose Committee on Urban Development last April 25 were agreed with the statement of Community of space leased to municipal Enercoop for the installation of solar panels needed. This same committee reported positively to the parcel leased to the cooperative crevillentina can install the photovoltaic power plant with reductions in municipal taxes.
