Ancestors Go Green

In Santa Coloma de Gramenet, a sun-bleached working class town outside Barcelona, residents have placed 462 solar panels atop mausoleums. This creates enough power for roughly 60 homes annually.

“The best tribute we can pay to our ancestors, whatever your religion may be, is to generate clean energy for new generations. That is our leitmotif,” said Esteve Serret, director Conste-Live Energy.

The cemetery hold the remains of about 57,000 people and the solar panels cover less than 5 percent of the total surface area. They cost 720,000 euros ($900,000) to install and each year will keep about 62 tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, Serret said.
