Spanish City Installs Solar Panels In Cemetery

solar_panels.jpgIn Santa Coloma de Gramenet, a working-class town outside Barcelona, a sea of solar panels sits atop mausoleums at its cemetery. The 462 solar panels produce enough electricity to power 60 homes annually, and is expected to avoid 62 tons of CO2 emissions a year, AP reports (via the Baltimore Sun).

The cemetery was chosen because flat, open and sun-drenched land is so scarce in the area that the graveyard was just about the only viable spot for the community to move ahead with its solar energy program.

The mostly South-facing panels cost $900,000 to install and cover less than 5 percent of the cemetery’s total surface area.
