Following their entry into service, these new facilities, installed on the rooftops of warehouses, are expected to generate more than 4.5 million kWh and avoid the atmospheric emission of over 2,300 metric tons of CO2 per year.
ESSE the equal joint venture between EGP and Sharp focusing on developing PV power in the Mediterranean region began operation of two systems for a total installed capacity of around 1.5 MW. The facilities, named Colbuccaro (Acerra 2) and Montegranaro (Acerra 1), are located in Campania. They are installed on the rooftops of 8 farm sheds and are expected to generate more than 1.8 million kWh per year, thereby avoiding the emission of over 900 metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year. The installations were built using thin-film modules manufactured at 3Suns Catania factory (3Sun is a joint venture between Enel Green Power, Sharp and STMicroelectronics). The entry into service of these two new facilities brings the joint ventures total installed capacity to over 20 MW.
