During 2018, continuing with its carbon footprint and energy consumption reduction policy, DESTILERÍAS MUÑOZ GÁLVEZ S.A. has contracted and executed a piece of photovoltaic generation equipment, 106,795 Watt-peak and 105,000 Watts nominal, with the installation company CEROGRADOSSUR S.L., which are added to the installation of 40,000 Watts implanted in 2014.

In this way, a total of 147,955 W of installed peak photovoltaic power is already available in our factory in Murcia, therefore we hope to generate more than 200,000 KWh per year, which represents approximately 20% of the electrical energy that we consume.

This last action, with a nominal capacity for the generation of a 105 KW power, is expected to generate around 170,000 KWh (approx. 14.6 toe/year), which represents 15% of the annual consumption of our plant. In addition to a reduction in the production of greenhouse gases (GHG) estimated at about 59.31 tons of CO2 equivalent.

The facilities have been fully operational since December 2018, with a total installation cost of € 184,550, of which € 55,365 are object of a subsidy granted by the European Union.
