Installation of a new power plant with a total power of 109kW. It is estimated that the plant will produce 178.6 MWh / year, which will avoid the emission of 48 tonnes of CO2 to the atmosphere, which is equivalent to 2 182 trees planted.
Moreover, throughout the total possible duration of the power plant, the project will allow the avoidance of 1 200 tonnes of CO2 which corresponds to the CO2 captured by a forest with an area of about 2.5 ha.
This campaign will be used to fund the installation of solar panels for electricity production in the Social Village of the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Borba, a social support complex offering services from kindergarten to nursing homes for the elderly, a community center or a community canteen.
It will be a 109kWp solar photovoltaic installation in one of the biggest buildings Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Borba owns - Quinta da Prata. Borba is a small city in Alentejo, the sunniest region in Portugal. Solar power production in this region is very profitable and not as risky as in different regions.
This project will generate 178,6 MWh a year. As solar power becomes less and less expensive, the better the business case for producing electricity for self-consumption is. Santa Casa is doing this as part of their continuous effort to optimize costs and expenditure.
