Through a partnership with Helexia, 432 solar panels produce clean, renewable energy for Leroy Merlin 's store in Portimão. Helexia participated in the entire value chain of the project, from development, operation and maintenance, providing all technical, legal, construction and financing resources.
Clean Energy at Leroy Merlin
The 119 kWp photovoltaic plant produces 167.8 MWh of clean energy annually. The plant takes the form of a solar carport on the parking lot of the Leroy Merlin store in Portimão. With this solar carport, the store produces clean energy and in parallel ensures protection for its customers. The image of sustainability is reinforced with this project.
The use of self-consumption solar energy allows Leroy Merlin in Portimão to produce its own energy, be less dependent on the electricity grid and reduce the energy bill. In parallel, there is a contribution to the environment because emissions of 78 tonnes of CO2 are avoided annually. This is equivalent to planting 2000 trees annually.
