In order to enhance and promote the use of clean, non-polluting energy, SQM together with Copec inaugurated in the Antofagasta Region the first electric eco-charger in South America based on solar energy, located at the Salar del Carmen site, where they are located. Lithium SQM final product plants. The initiative seeks to contribute to sustainable development, promote electromobility and contribute to caring for the environment, reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the use of solar energy.
INAUGURATION OF THE FIRST ECO ELECTRIC CHARGER IN SOUTH AMERICA
This sustainable energy system does not require being connected to the national electricity grid (Off Grid), since it operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is powered by 100% solar energy, thanks to its 46 panels located at an inclination of 15° in the 96 square meters destined for its operation. The system absorbs the energy generated by the sun, relying on the lithium batteries arranged in the system so that, finally, it is distributed through an electric charger that has an intelligent controller, one of the many advantages of using it correctly and Solar energy responsible.
