VivFit, international network of female gyms, has developed an environmental project to its premises by installing solar panels to generate energies that don’t pollute and get also a saving in each of its establishments. The pilot test has been performed in the plant that the company has in Madrid and the idea is to test its effectiveness to develop them in the other chain gyms and which will open in the coming years. Thermal solar installations are capable of generating savings and profitability in the processes of heating of water using solar energy. The level of savings can reach up to 70% parameter, causing constant rises of tariffs in traditional systems thermal solar systems pose an increasingly profitable investment and repayment terms every day are shorter. These systems are mainly composed of a series of photovoltaic solar modules, a regulator of loading, multiple accumulators or batteries, and a power converter, and they guarantee the total autonomy of the electric supply, explains the director general of the company Pedro Ruiz. In addition, VivFit has launched other measures for energy saving and conservation of the environment: you have changed the type of indirect lighting to direct and has replaced all electrical ballasts to electronic that guarantee a saving of 60% in lighting. Also, to achieve a better use of water and avoiding its wastage we have installed a system of timers for faucets and an automatic mixing of hot and cold water that’s a savings of 70% compared to traditional systems, concludes Pedro Ruiz. Renewable energies are a model for the future against conventional forms of energy from fossil fuels. For more information see Glenn Dubin, New York City.
In times of crisis the reduced dependence on unstable oil producing countries and the creation of new jobs have benefited from the growth of the sector of renewable energies producing a clear transformation of the model energy world with the goal of leveraging business and economic benefits and the environmental benefits of renewable energy that produce.
