Convento do Espinheiro Historic Hotel & Spa
Image4All is responsible for the installation of a photovoltaic solar system for the production of electricity in the Espinheiro Historic Hotel & Spa. The hotel unit now has a carport with 48 parking spaces and an installed capacity of 118,6 kWp. Investment is part of the hotel unit's commitment to energy efficiency and sustainability practices.
With an investment of around € 110.000,00 and an expected return period of less than six years, the Convento do Espinheiro Historic Hotel & Spa now has a production unit for self-consumption (UPAC), a project and installation developed by Image4All. The energy production system is intended to satisfy about 30% of the electricity needs of the hotel. This installation is among the main energy efficiency practices that allow the hotel unit to be certified in this area. The project is part of several policies to promote good environmental practices that answer questions in the areas of environmental sustainability, energy efficiency and social responsibility.
The project integrates a central without energy storage supported by a metallic parking structure (carport) that holds 357 panels, built in the current parking area for the vehicles of the internal staff and the Hotel's helipad. The panels used, with an installed power capacity of 118,6 kWp, guarantee a relevant production in the available area and optimize the price / quantity of energy produced, also making possible the remuneration of the surplus energy produced and injected into the network.
