Jeronimo Martins completes rooftop PV installation in Portugal

Portugal's Jeronimo Martins Valongo Distribution Centre PV array

May 7 (Renewables Now) - Portuguese food conglomerate Jeronimo Martins SGPS SA (ELI:JMT) has completed installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) array on the rooftop of its Valongo Distribution Centre in the North of Portugal.

The group has invested a total of EUR 1.2 million (USD 1.3m) in the project, which consists of 5,000 solar modules and has the capacity to produce about 2,121.48 MWh a year. The output of the solar system, covering a surface of 20,000 square metres (215,278 sq ft), is equal to the annual consumption of 580 households.

This is the third such project for Jeronimo Martins, which had already installed two solar arrays in the South of Portugal. Operational since 2018, the Algoz Distribution Centre and the Recheio store systems consist of 3,876 and 1,600 solar panels, respectively.

In addition to these rooftop arrays, the firm foresees the completion of four self-consumption PV power stations in Lisbon by the end of the first half of the year.
