rOTA NAVAL BASE
FEASIBILITY STUDY OF CRYSTALLINE SILICON SKYLIGHTS IN ANDALUSIA
Reduction in HVAC energy demands
Internal Rate of Return
The project at the Rota Naval Base in Cadiz consists of the installation of photovoltaic glass modules in a structure executed with the aim of providing shade and generating renewable energy at this military base. 12% of the vast amount of power consumed by the American Navy is of renewable origin, and their aim is that this percentage should continue to grow.
In this case, they decided on the integration of high-efficiency (15.20%) crystalline silicon laminated (6 + 6) photovoltaic glass modules, measuring 1,550 x 1,000 mm and with a power capacity of 235 Wp. To complete this 121 m2 structure 78 modules were required, capable of generating nearly 33,000 kWh, preventing the release of over 21 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere and saving 19 barrels of oil per year.
- Total area - 121 M2
- Electricity generated per year - 32.260 kWh
- Total lighting points operating 4 hours a day - 1.838 lighting points
- Avoided CO2 emissions per year - 21.613 CO2
- Barrels of oil saved per year - 19 barrels
