project in 2016, implemented measures have already
achieved mitigation of 1,000 t CO2e per year and
saved the utility around €210,000 in annual costs.
The Mexican partner utilities in San Francisco del Rincón are
avoiding emissions of 2,500 t CO2e per year, comparable
to planting 12,400 trees annually. They have achieved
