EiDF Solar and Decathlon, the sports retail company, have signed an agreement for the construction of self-consumption projects for the generation of photovoltaic energy with the aim of increasing Decathlon's self-consumption rate of energy.In an initial phase, the project will be will develop on 9 roofs of its centers in Spain. The total power to be installed exceeds 1 MW, and it will generate more than 1,327,746 kWh of renewable solar energy, the equivalent of 4,048.1 tons of CO2 that it will stop emitting into the atmosphere. With this sustainability and energy efficiency strategy, Decathlon will be able to cover around 33% of its current annual consumption in each center.
