Self-consumption solar energy for irrigating olive groves.

Description

Herdade da Canada (Canada Farm) carries out farming activities. 

This campaign aims to finance a photovoltaic plant with batteries to power the promoter's irrigation system for a super-intensive olive grove.

The plant will include 67 550 Wp modules with an output of 36.85 kWp and 20 kWh batteries.

The construction of the solar plant and installation of the panels will be carried out by LuzVerde, a Portuguese company with over ten years of experience in providing energy services. Luz Verde is also the installer of several other projects funded through Goparity:  Intermarché Solar I and II, Solar Paintings, Solar Car Wash, Solarize Cuba, Solar footwear factory, Solar Consultants, Solar Olives, Solar Olives watering, Solar Shoes.

The Impact

Direct 

  • Contribution to the decarbonisation of Portugal, avoiding CO2 emissions: With a total production of clean energy of over 58 MWh per year, the solar plant will avoid the emission of about 8 tonnes of CO2 per year. This is equivalent to the CO2 absorption of 364 trees.
  • Cost reduction for the end customer: decentralized energy production through renewable sources, close to the place of consumption, helps to avoid distribution costs, this being the most competitive option. In addition, the company's lower dependence on the national grid makes it less vulnerable to price fluctuations and tax charges.
