The Enel X Argentina team installed a photovoltaic park on a site belonging to the company Molinos Rivara, located in the town of Alberti, south of the province of Buenos Aires.
This park is made up of 480 solar panels, which together add an installed power of 156 kWp, capable of generating enough energy to supply approximately 80 houses per month.
The park's objective is self-generation and to reduce energy costs, while being sustainable in its operations, considering that the company produces certified organic corn flour and exports certified organic broken corn.
The installation also has software that allows self-regulation and thus intelligent operation. On weekends, for example, when consumption decreases, the park only generates the energy required to stop operating. During the week he works at his maximum capacity.
Today, with what is installed, Molinos Rivara generates 12% of its consumption per month.
Alejandro Rueda, head of B2B at Enel X Argentina, explained that this is an important project for the town of Alberti, which, while facilitating self-generation of energy, is a reference for other producers in the field to join this sustainable initiative.
He also commented that in the coming months, the Enel X Argentina team will present this initiative as a success story to entrepreneurs interested in self-generating energy. "It is a technology that they already use in different Latin American countries and that supposes competitive advantages for all, both the company and its environment."
On this site, where the photovoltaic park occupies approximately 1,765 m2, the Rivara company has a mill, where it processes the corn it grows, and an oil extraction plant, to process soybeans, sunflower and canola grains. It also has a network of grain storage plants, a seedbed for wheat, soybeans and barley.
Fernando Rivara, president of the Buenos Aires Association of Acopiadores, is satisfied with the installation and ready to continue working together to grow technically and operationally in self-generation of energy.
