Vodafone Powers Base Stations with Wind Turbines

vodafone.jpgVodafone announced it has successfully begun generating electricity for its mobile communications network.

The wind micro-generating system allows the company to achieve reductions of 15 percent to 20 percent in total electricity consumption and CO2 emissions by its base stations. The system is being implemented at 32 of Vodafone’s telecommunications base stations around Portugal.

If the necessary storage solution existed, Vodafone says the quantity of electricity generated by a 3.5 kilowatt turbine would be enough to supply the normal use of a rural household of four people.

In April, the company announced it will cut its CO2 emission by 50 percent by the year 2020 through increased energy efficiency and increasing the amount of renewable energy the company uses.

Last year, Vodafone challenged suppliers to improve the energy efficiency of its network equipment and achieved a 25 percent improvement.
