Acciona Energía has signed an alliance with SACI Falabella to supply almost 100 centers of its brands Sodimac, Falabella, Tottus and Open Plaza in Chile with renewable energy over the next few years. Through the alliance, the company is strengthening its line of business of supplies to large customers in the country, following a previous agreement with Google. The energy under the agreement will come from ACCIONA Energía renewables installations in the country.
Acciona has already started supplying renewable-based electricity to the first stores and six shopping malls of the Falabella group. In 2018, it will add the remaining centers that can feasibly be connected, including the two main distribution centers of Falabella and Sodimac.
The alliance will avoid the emission of around 225,000 metric tons of CO2 every year from conventional coal-fired power stations, besides, this agreement not only means a major saving in costs, it also ties in with the company efforts in the area of sustainability to reduce the impact of its operation on the environment.
