Enel Green Power is committed to creating long-term shared value and productivity for the communities of Kaufman County, Texas. The Lily solar + storage project includes agrivoltaics in its sustainability strategy whereby agriculture and solar power are co-developed on the existing land. This generates benefits for the community by improving native vegetation, protecting local wildlife and ecosystems and establishing pollinator-friendly habitats which can improve local food production.
As part of its $1.3 million commitment in response to the COVID-19 pandemic across the US and Canada, Enel Green Power developed initiatives to support community hospitals, schools and emergency responders in Texas. Enel Green Power is supporting local food banks and it gave food baskets to families for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. $5,000 was raised by on-site staff to donate to the local Dallas Breast Cancer Research team.
We use innovative tools and techniques to build solar farms, such as construction machinery equipped with active safety systems, smart tracking, advanced digital platforms, and tablet software solutions to monitor and remotely support site activities as well as plant commissioning. These processes and tools will enable swifter, more accurate, and reliable data collection, improving the quality of construction and facilitating communication between on-site and off-site teams. 360 cameras/drones are used to gather more information about the site, and smart glasses and remote assistant applications perform virtual site visits and safety inspections.
