Commitment to the environment
The Center has a solar energy installation. For its financing a subsidy of € 24.000 was received from the General Directorate of Energy and Mines of the Generalitat and another of € 16.600 contributed by the Ministry of Industry and Energy. This installation saves 70% of the cost of the Center's hot water.
In addition, as part of our commitment to the environment, we use low-energy light bulbs and presence detectors, with the aim of adjusting consumption to the needs of users. On the other hand, the garden has been designed with native plants that need little water.
