Nestle installs its third solar self-consumption array in Spain

Nestle Espana, a unit of Swiss food and beverage producer Nestle SA has commissioned a solar self-consumption system at its Aquarel mineral water bottling factory in Herrera del Duque, western Spain.

The project was executed by Spanish self-consumption specialist Powen, which Nestle selected to install and manage over 2,100 latest-generation panels with a total capacity of more than 1.1 MW. The arrays generate almost 20% of the bottling plant’s current electricity consumption and help avoid the emission of over 4,100 tonnes of CO2 per year, Nestle Espana said.

This is Nestle Espana’s third solar project in Spain, joining its previously installed solar parks at the Solis tomato sauce factory in Miajadas and at the Nestle roasted coffee factory in Reus. Furthermore, all electricity purchased for Nestle's Spanish sites comes from renewable sources, the company added.
