With the aim of educating and raising awareness in society about issues relating to energy and using it efficiently, the Naturgy Foundation has implemented a programme of educational activities for 3 to 16-year-olds at the wind farm in Merengue (in Plasencia, Cáceres) and the photovoltaic plant in Carpio (in Carpio del Tajo, Toledo) as part of its educational programme.
