Solar plant El Carpio
Renewable energy (Environment)
Solar plant El Carpio, located in Vallodolid, was developed and constructed by BP Solar. High-quality panels guarantee a good performance. The plant has a production capacity of 4.5 MW. In 2013, the plant provided 2,000 households with green electricity. Triodos Renewables Europe Fund fully owns El Carpio.
Energy is a necessity in modern life but the current dependence on fossil fuels to provide it has a high environmental and social impact. We believe that a fundamental transition is needed away from a carbon based economy to a renewable one. By lending and investing in this sector we try to stimulate this transition, with our main focus on financing solar, wind and hydro energy.
