Grow Energy starts construction of UPAC ate the ceramic group Ceragês

Grow Energy contracted, through its investment vehicle Grow Energy Invest, SA, the installation of 1 more UPAC in Portugal.

This time, Grow Energy will build a 482kWp Photovoltaic Plant for self-consumption of electricity by Ceragês, a ceramics company located in the region of Mortágua, district of Viseu. This is a project that will allow Ceragês to produce 694MWh of energy annually – 33.5% of its needs – and avoid the emission of 215 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere.

As Luís Pereira de Almeida, General Manager of Grow Energy, points out, “this is a particularly interesting project because it combines the useful with the pleasant by allowing not only considerable savings and a more sustainable positioning in an industry that consumes a lot of energy as is the case of ceramics. , as well as allowing the replacement of a fiber cement covering with all the benefits in terms of reducing risks to the health of Ceragês employees that this represents”.

With this project, Grow Energy Invest increases the number of Photovoltaic Plants in its portfolio to 30, making a total of 4.7MWp.
