Leed Platinum-Certified Tigo Campus
WHERE: El Salvador
WHAT: One of our newest offices is also among the most environmentally sustainable and cost-efficient commercial buildings in Latin America.
HOW: With an investment of over USD 500,000, Tuscania Corporate & Business Park (TCBP), the developer of the corporate campus where Tigo El Salvador operates, inaugurated the solar energy plant with which they expect to achieve a significant reduction in the campus’ carbon footprint while also reducing reliance on the grid and therefore making the campus more resilient in case of power outages.
The 1,238 solar panels installed will generate 606,000 Kwh per year—equivalent to the energy consumption of 200 households—avoiding 413 tons of CO2 emissions every year.
With the installation of the solar energy plant, the facility met all the requirements to obtain the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification, becoming one of the first projects in El Salvador to achieve this recognition.
