Some people think that solar plants take up a lot of space and that they are not beneficial for the environment, but the reality is very different. In these installations human activity in the area is very limited, which enables fauna and flora to develop protected from external threats.
Before installing a photovoltaic plant, all the necessary studies are undertaken to measure the environmental impact that the construction will have. To minimise this as far as possible, plans are developed by all the agents involved to guarantee that the damage is minimal or non-existent.
In the reports prepared by independent environmental entities who work in solar plants such as EMAT, SFERA, Innogestiona, 360 solutions for climate change, and LINUM the conclusions are clear: the wealth of species found in photovoltaic plants has reached remarkable levels, with the best results obtained in the oldest installations and those that have undertaken the greatest number of environmental improvement actions.
In other words, far from subtracting, solar plants contribute positively, favouring the development of flora and fauna.
Numerous options to protect biodiversity
This symbiosis between human activity and natural habitat is the objective for which we must work to achieve sustainable dynamics. In addition to their value as an alternative to non-renewable energy, solar plants may offer further benefits. Being such delimited areas where there is usually no human activity, they have become authentic sanctuaries which encourage the recovery of native fauna and flora.
