Artemisa, Cuba - Artemisa provincial Tv station is the second plant of the Cuban Radio and Television Institute (ICRT) in the country that has solar panels to carry out its activities, and save between 40 and 50 kW per day to the National Electroenergetic System.
According to Jorge Nellar Crespo, director of energy in ICRT, workers of the Technical Services Company HAYCO installed 40 panels with a power of 10kW, which should save 18 mW / h per year, which will depend on weather conditions and the sun intensity.
Nellar Crespo added that this number represents 76 tons of diesel unused in electricity generation each year, and 14 tons of carbon dioxide not emitted into the atmosphere, which makes it clean energy.
"Panels will also deliver power to the national network, and will be rewarded from that contribution, or they will take it from it in case the telecentre's consumption exceeds its capacity," he explained.
Panels were built with Italian technology, very high efficiency: they must amortize the initial cost in four years. Its useful life is about 25 years.
The installation is the result of the link with the Center for Social Research of the eastern region university , which conducted feasibility studies. The first of these systems is located in Radio Jaruco provincial station, in Mayabeque, and has 9 kW, but they must be increased soon in Las Tunas, when they place another of 15 kW.
