In 2020 the Pavigrés Group started an important process towards reducing carbon emissions and dependence on the public energy grid. At two of its four factories, namely Cerev and Pavigrés II, photovoltaic panels were installed, which together generate around 2677MWh/year.
In 2020, Cerev was the first factory to be equipped with 2,222 photovoltaic panels that will generate about 1392MWh/year, thus reducing dependence on the public energy grid by about 13%. With this reduction, around 500 tons of CO2 will no longer be indirectly emitted.
In 2021/2022, Pavigrés II was the second plant to be equipped with 1850 photovoltaic panels that will generate about 1285MWh/year, thus reducing the use of the public energy grid by about 19%. With this reduction, around 240 tons of CO2 will no longer be indirectly emitted.
With these investments, the Pavigrés Group has taken two decisive factors into account: the reduction in costs through the use of clean energy and the significant reduction in the amount of CO2 emitted by reducing its need of public grid energy.
