2nd stage of solar panels installation completed, now meeting 85% of factory electricity needs from renewable sources
In November, Fabrica de Tequilas Finos completed the second stage of its installation of solar panels, which will meet 85% of all our electrical energy needs for the production facility. 78 new panels have now been installed in addition to the existing 216 panels. Altogether, this system will generate an average of 128 000 kwh annually, reducing our Co2 emissions by 640 tons per year.
The plan is to receive 100% of our energy needs from the sun in the near future, allowing our production facility to become completely independent from fossil fuel energy, This will help to protect the environment and not harm our planet – which provides us with those wonderful agave plants from which we produce our exceptional tequilas, – says Mr. Olegs Alainis, managing director of Fabrica de Tequilas Finos.
