The Escuderos solar plant in the municipalities of Altarejos and Poveda de Obispalía (Cuenca, Spain) generates clean electricity from a renewable energy source, solar radiation. With a total of 361.11 ha, the four plants that comprises Escuderos evacuate the energy in the SET Complex Photovoltaic Altarejos 132/30 kV, to be conducted through a 15.2 km long high-voltage power line at 132 kV and to the 132/400 kV Villanueva de los Escuderos Renovables SET, which in turn is connected to the 400 kV Villanueva de los Escuderos SET, owned by Red Eléctrica de España.
The plant has 540,360 photovoltaic panels of 370 Wp and an efficiency of 20.7-21%. The modules are installed on trackers, structures that automatically track the position of the sun in an East-West direction throughout the day, thus maximizing production at all times. In addition, the plant has a control system against wind gusts of over 60 km/h, which places the photovoltaic panels in a horizontal position to minimize the stress due to excessive wind on the structure.”
Grenergy has defined the basic principles and strategic lines that underpin and guide the strategy of social impact in the environment of its projects.
Two-way, frequent and fluid communication with the local community from the early stages as the basis of the strategy for relations with the local community, aimed at creating a social link with the company.
The company’s social contribution will seek to improve the well-being of the local community with a medium and long-term perspective, giving priority to those initiatives capable of creating a positive social impact and generating added value in their quality of life.
The implementation of social initiatives aims to create and strengthen links between the company and the community and is therefore flexible in nature and in tune with the specific needs of each community, identified as a result of fluid and frequent communication with the local community.
Social activity is designed and implemented in close collaboration with strong local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) familiar with the local culture and reality.
The social contribution is made in an orderly and transparent manner in accordance with applicable legislation and in compliance with the company’s ethical codes.
The relationship with the local community shall be based on respect for its values and traditions by all employees and collaborators of the company, and shall observe the established internal systems of representation.
Appropriate metrics are used to track the impact of the social initiatives implemented, and are reported to stakeholders in the annual sustainability reports and/or on the company’s website.
The strategic lines that define the nature of specific social development initiatives are based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that the company has chosen as a priority, so that the implementation of these initiatives contributes directly to these goals:
