Last May 2021, we began installing the first 350 m2 of solar panels on the roof of our factory. Now, one year later, we are installing another 114 m2 on the roof of our offices and warehouses.
The company’s commitment to the rational use of its resources and the prevention of pollution leads us to incorporate continuous improvements in all stages of the life cycle of our products. With this objective and in this context, P. de la Oliva, S.A., with its extensive manufacturing facilities, has decided to expand self-consumption by installing an additional 114 m2 of solar panels on the roof of its offices and warehouse facilities, with 464 m2 of solar panels already installed. An initiative that provides an estimated power of 24 kW in addition to the previous 56 KW, which will mean a self-consumption of 55% in the workshop and 61% in the offices and warehouses of the annual production of energy consumed.
These new solar panels would mean a reduction in annual CO2 emissions of 12,713 kg compared to an installation using non-renewable energies, although delaoliva already has a “100% green energy certificate”, as it has contracted 100% of its energy from renewable sources and is actively working to reduce its carbon footprint, which is calculated annually by the organization. In this way, it actively monitors this indicator that assesses the total impact that an organization has on the climate in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, with the clear objective of minimizing it.
This is just one more milestone in the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability. With more than 30,000 m2 of its own facilities in Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid) dedicated to manufacturing, painting, upholstery, assembly and warehouses that internalizes the entire production process within its organization, with products manufactured in Spain. And with its own fleet of trucks and organized routes throughout the peninsula, all of which allows reducing the environmental impact with transport savings and optimizing resources to the maximum. The objective is to minimize the environmental impact in each and every stage of the life cycle of its products.
