With a background of more than 40 years, this week the center has inaugurated its new project
on electrical self-consumption with the installation of a photovoltaic solar energy plant.
This investment forms part of the Sustainability Project the center initiated a few years ago that constitutes another step towards its compromise for being an increasingly eco-responsible school.
Solidary projects, recycling campaigns, the optimization of resources, the rational use of energy, a green economy and now the use of clean energy make up the Sustainability Project in which the center is immersed and that today constitutes one of its fundamental pillars and objectives.
The entity has committed to the installation of 47 photovoltaic modules for electric consumption, an investment that is deemed to be recovered in 5 years and that will avoid the emission of 8,27 yearly tons of CO2, which translates to the plantation of 380 trees. The photovoltaic installation will promote renewable energy among the student body, to whom the project and its repercussions on the environment will be presented, with the aim to raise awareness on climate change and boost new technologies.
The school strongly commits to these types of innovative ecological projects that are related to the rational use of natural resources, and oriented towards the development of responsible practises as well as the compromise and social awareness supporting and actively participating in programs, projects and activities of different types.
