rOTA NAVAL BASE
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.
FEASIBILITY STUDY OF CRYSTALLINE SILICON SKYLIGHTS IN CADIZ
Reduction in HVAC energy demands
Internal Rate of Return
- Total Area - 121 M2
- Electricity generated in 35 years - 937,153 kWh
- Total lighting points operating 4 hours per day in 35 years - 1,838 lighting points
- CO2 emmisions avoided in 35 years - 628 Tons of CO2
- Barrels of oil saved in 35 years - 551 barrels per m2
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 (5.08 x 3.28 Ft) and with a power capacity of 235 Wp.
To complete this 121 m2 (1,305 sqFt) 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.
