Sobral I Photovoltaic Power Plant (Brazil)
Besides running the power plant, we are implementing an action programme with the local indigenous community in its vicinity. The Quilombola communities are Afro-Brazilian descendants of slaves who escaped in colonial times.
In this regard we have launched a social action plan to develop projects of community interest. Collaboration with the local authorities and community committees is key to the success of the projects.
Projects resulting from the social action plan
|Support for education||We offer university scholarships to students without resources, and donate books for the subjects in the upper grades. Since 2019, three students have been benefiting from these comprehensive scholarships, which cover accommodation, transport and maintenance.|
|Restoration of community infrastructures||We are collaborating in restoring access to the communities and water supply for livestock and agriculture, which are the economic basis of local Quilombola communities.|
|Clean energy access to a water source||We are gathering information on wells in the area with the aim of improving the infrastructures and replacing the old diesel-operated water pumps with more modern, efficient and environmentally friendly solar pumps.|
We have 400 megawatts (MW) of photovoltaic power plants across the globe, which produce electricity from limitless renewable energy.
Their production produces no emissions, operating costs are very low, and maintenance is simple.
We develop, run, operate and maintain the plants outside Spain through Global Power Generation.
