X-ELIO’s Community Plan 

This training is part of X-ELIO’s Community Plan, focused on the development of actions that promote environment, education, communities and health.  The aim of these courses is to contribute to the qualification of those residents of the municipality of Lorca who wish to take part in the X-ELIO project.

This action complements X-ELIO’s ‘Lorca Solar’ project, a photovoltaic plant that is scheduled to begin its installation at the end of this year. During its first year, it will produce 748,000 MWh of 100% clean and sustainable energy and will supply the equivalent consumption of 215,000 homes.

“For X-ELIO, contributing to the communities in which we operate is essential. Taking into account the relevance that the photovoltaic sector in Spain is taking on, becoming one of the main solar energy markets in Europe, we want to give the opportunity to the residents of Lorca to develop their career in this sector, thus promoting local economic development and specialisation in the region”, explains José Enrique Pardo Ayuso, X-ELIO’s Development Manager in the Region.

The Mayor of Lorca, Diego José Mateos, also expressed his satisfaction with “the jobs that will be created, especially in the construction and then in the maintenance of the new photovoltaic plant; and the fact that this is a great commitment to the use of clean energy that will make us less dependent on fossil fuels”.
