Self-consumption photovoltaic rooftop – Costa Verde & Helexia

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Costa Verde reinforces its energy transition with a new rooftop Photovoltaic project in Aveiro, Portugal.
There are 3,600 solar panels that ensure about 25% of its energy needs, avoiding the emission of 713 tons of CO2 annually, the equivalent of planting 18,300 trees per year. Before having a photovoltaic plant on the top of the building, there was a fiber cement roof, which is a material that contains asbestos. Installing a photovoltaic power plant created a double advantage: eliminating a substance harmful to human health and using the new roof for the production of clean and renewable energy.
A “two in one” project commissioned by Helexia, whose business model is based on the renewable energy produced, allowed Costa Verde (without any investment) to become more energy efficient.
Costa Verde is a world-class design and innovation company in porcelain, its products stand out for their high-quality index.
The factory is in the District of Aveiro and has a covered area of 30,000 m² and an available area of more than 60,000 m².
