The project consists of 1,568 photovoltaic modules, each with a capacity of 670Wp, generating an estimated 1,659MWh in the first year. This clean energy production will be key to boosting hotel operations, avoiding the annual emission of 1,173 tons of CO2 and offering visitors a differentiating experience by immersing them in a sustainable environment during their stay.

This joint effort not only marks a significant advance in sustainable tourism, but also drives the responsible and planned energy transition that this tourist area requires,” said Oscar San Martin, general manager at CEPM. “By integrating renewable energy and advanced storage technology, we are ushering in a new era in the way we approach and use energy.
