Massimo Zanetti towards a more sustainable future

Grow Energy has just inaugurated at Massimo Zanetti Beverage Iberia the first of two Photovoltaic Plants intended for self-consumption of electricity.

With an installed capacity of 197kWp, this first UPAC will allow theMassimo Zanetti Group to produce around 270MWh of electricity per year, which corresponds to around 30% of its energy needs, avoiding the annual emission of 84 tons of CO2 for the atmosphere.

In early 2021, the installation of a second UPAC will follow, on the same premises.

According to Luís Pereira de Almeida, General Manager of Grow Energy, “this partnership with Massimo Zanetti, which started simultaneously with the reconversion of the factory itself, represents an excellent example of collaboration with a multinational company that seeks to maximize the sustainability of its operations” .
