Solarnews, the magazine specialized in solar energy, has devoted two pages to TSO (The South Oracle)in its third quarter of 2019 edition. They include the interview with Antonio Calo, CEO of TSO, about the Solar Electric Tariff that we launched last April, coinciding with the approval of the Spanish Royal Decree Law 244/2019 on the Regulation of self-consumption in Spain, becoming the first flat rate tariff for photovoltaic solar energy in this country.
The South Oracle (TSO) is once again a pioneer in promoting self-consumption with solar energy through PPA in Spain.Despensa San Nicolas, a company from Jaen, has relied on TSO’s experience to become the first company to sign a solar PPA in the organic food sector in Spain to produce its organic eggs, characterised by their excellent quality and high nutritional value.
This company, which specialises in organic products, will install TSO’sultralight flexible panel on the roof of its 700 m2 poultry farm. The installation will have a 10.40 kW power capacity, covering the 100% of its daytime electricity consumption. Thanks to the photovoltaic plant that will cover the roof of the organic egg farm, Despensa San Nicolas will stop emitting circa 145,000 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere within the warranty period of the plant, reducing its carbon footprint by approximately 10,000 trees.
The photovoltaic solar plant allows Despensa San Nicolas to complete its sustainable policy, which is a step forward in the environmental balance of the farm, where the birds are raised in open space conditions within an organic olive grove.
Energy efficiency and ECO20® certification (made with solar energy)
In order to testify its commitment to environmental sustainabilityand energy efficiency,Despensa San Nicolas will be awarded with the ECO20® seal, the only one to guarantee a 100% production with energy from the sun, which is certified by ECA Bureau Veritas.
