It was Friday morning at the Sanitary Plant. It is a unique project in the province that will allow the production of clean and self-sufficient energy.
"The main goal of this work is to increase energy self-sufficiency: that the municipality uses less conventional energy, thus saving the monthly fee we pay electric cooperative, and above all, working to use renewable energy in a sustainable and healthy city, committed to environmental protection" – He said. Mayor Martín Piaggio after signing a contract with a working cooperative that will carry out tasks at the Sanitary Plant and build the first Solar Park in the province, which will allow the production of clean and self-sufficient energy.
Piaggio reviewed the three axes of the sustainable energy plan being implemented: the production of energy from renewable sources, the rational use of energy in municipal facilities and the reuse of municipal waste. "We are moving with the Entrée Ríos Autonomous University and ENET No. 3 in a contract of employment promoting rational energy consumption," said the city president.
"The main goal is to increase energy self-sufficiency: that the municipality uses less conventional energy, thus saving on paying the tariff of the cooperative, and working on the use of renewable energy, thinking about a sustainable and healthy city, committed to environmental protection," he said. Piaggio in the act.
Solar Park will have 50 kWp installed and generates approximately 20% of the total energy consumed throughout the year. It will be installed in the green space of the factory on Boulevard 2 de Abril, in the north-east corner, which is created at Puerto Argentino Street. It is important to remember that this park would be the first of its kind in the province.
However, the energy plan, in addition to the Solar Park installation, includes the launch of promotion campaigns aimed at reducing energy consumption in municipal buildings and public lighting.
In this sense, thanks to the Gualeguaychú LED program, the municipality exchanges around 5000 luminaires using LED technology, achieving a significant reduction in energy consumption between 40% and 60%.
"We are moving with the Entre Rios Autonomous University and ENET No. 3 in a contract of employment promoting the rational use of energy," added Martin Cerneux, director of Electrical Engineering.
