San Miguel is a citrus company Tucumana that will transform its energy matrix and 40% of its supply will be with renewable energy.
It is a sustainability strategy in order to make an increasingly efficient use of natural resources. Citrícola Tucumana San Miguel has decided to incorporate renewable energy sources into its matrix. This will reconvert the supply of electricity from its Famailla Industrial Complex. This is the largest operating unit that has the leading company in the southern hemisphere.
The volume of renewable energy will be acquired in the Renewable Energy Term Market (“MATER”). This corresponds to 8,700 MWh per year equivalent to 40% of the plant's electricity consumption. Paula Marincioni, manager in San Miguel, explains that citrus tucumana will be doubling five years in advance the target set by Law No. 27.191. This is about Renewable Energies and requires that 20% of electricity demand be supplied with clean sources by 2025.
To achieve this, citrus company Tucumana launched a tender process through the Conecto Energía platform, Argentina's first digital energy marketplace. The winning supplier of this process was Central Puerto Renovables through its Los Olivos Wind Farm . The company is entering into a 10-year contract starting January 2020. “We are proud to be part of this project that represents a new milestone in the transformation of our country's energy matrix,” said Rubén Vázquez , manager of Renewable Energies at CP.
The PE Los Olivos, a member of the Central Puerto Group, is located southwest of Córdoba, in Rio Cuarto. It is in the advanced stage of construction and will have an installed power of 22.8 MW. It responds to the need to find new alternatives to generate electricity. Energies that are more environmentally friendly and replace the use of non-renewable resources.

With nearly 10,000 hectares of production in various origins, it caters to more than 300 customers in 80 countries.
