A plant without conflict of use
The 3,525 panels of the Galion solar power plant are deployed on the roof of the sugar refinery, where they occupy an area of 2,538 m2, without conflict of use. Because of this location, part of the energy produced is used to cover the operating needs of the sugar refinery, while the rest is injected onto the grid.
