More than 100,000 families in Spain and Portugal already have more than 700,000 EDP solar panels installed

The year 2022 was an important milestone for several companies that bet on energy transition and renewable energies. EDP recently announced that it had surpassed the mark of 700,000 solar panels installed in more than 100,000 families in Portugal and Spain.

Data from the national energy company reveal that the installed solar photovoltaic panels have allowed the company to reduce its monthly bills by up to 30% (or 70% when aggregated with a storage battery), contribute to energy independence, and have avoided the emission of about 40,000 tons of CO2.

2022 was, in fact, a record year for the installation of solar panels for self-consumption in the homes of Portuguese and Spanish families: last year alone, almost 40,000 subscribed to EDP‘s solar solutions.

In a press release, EDP states that it currently has 137MWp of installed capacity and 700,000 solar panels on homes in Portugal and Spain.

The energy production generated in these facilities would be enough to supply 500,000 people per month with renewable energy, the equivalent of supplying the entire population of Lisbon with solar energy alone.

Last year, the company installed an average of 170 solar panels per day on the Iberian Peninsula. In these two countries, as well as in Italy, Poland, Brazil, the United States and some Asian markets, EDP also has business customers signing up for solar projects. In total, the company already exceeds 1.6 GWp of distributed solar capacity.
