Published on Thursday, 13 January 2011

The Enel Group’s renewables company has built another plant, this time in the Perugia province. The plant is able to generate over 1 million kWh annually from solar energy alone.

Rome, January 13th, 2011 – Enel Green Power is continuing to progress in the photovoltaic sector. As a global leader in developing and operating renewable energy solutions, the company has completed a ground-based photovoltaic plant in Deruta, near Perugia. With 3,300 polycrystalline silicon panels installed on agricultural land owned by the University of Perugia, the plant covers a total area of approximately 2.5 hectares.

The photovoltaic plant has an installed capacity of 1 MW and is able to generate over 1.2 million kWh annually, equivalent to the average energy consumption of around 450 households. This will save almost 105 TOE (tonnes of oil equivalent) of fossil fuel a year and prevent around 700 tonnes of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere.

Enel Green Power is the Enel Group company dedicated to the development and management of power generation from renewable resources in Europe and the Americas. It is the sector's world leader thanks to some 21 billion kilowatt hours generated from water, sun, wind and geothermal, meeting the consumption requirements of some 8 million households each year and avoiding about 16 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. The company has an installed capacity of about 5,900 MW, with over 600 facilities around the world and a generation mix that includes wind, solar, hydro, geothermal and biomass.
