In 2008 a photovoltaic panel plant with an output of around 180 kW was installed at La Bellotta. This plant was created by replacing the original Eternit roof coverings on the livestock sheds with new insulated coverings, onto which the PV panels were fitted.
These panels cover an area in excess of 3000 m² and are fully integrated with the roof coverings, thus benefiting both the environment and the look of the farm.
The electricity produced by the plant is used both on the farm and sold to the energy market. This renewable energy production, 216.000 kWh/year about, when compared to the same amount of electricity produced from fossil sources, provides a significant CO2 saving (around 121 tons/year or 43 tons/year of oil barrels).
