Guadalajara, April 4, 2022
Iberdrola, through its foundation in Spain, has signed a collaboration agreement with the Guadalajara City Council to develop an ornamental lighting project for the Arab Bridge. The replacement and renovation of the lighting of the Moorish Bridge is another example of Iberdrola’s commitment to Castilla-La Mancha, the conservation of the region’s historical and artistic heritage, and the promotion of the social value of culture.
The Councilor for Education, Culture and Sports, Ana Rodriguez Perez, the Mayor of Guadalajara, Alberto Rojo, and the President of the Iberdrola Spain Foundation, Fernando Garcia Sanchez, signed the agreement at a ceremony this morning.
The initiative, which is part of Iberdrola’s Illuminations Program, will involve an investment of around 150,000 euros to provide the monument with new lighting that will accentuate the beauty of the architectural elements through a design adapted to the bridge’s heritage values.
The design contemplates the criteria of efficiency and energy saving in addition to the use of the latest LED technology. Reduction of environmental light pollution and respecting the natural environment of the bridge. A very careful installation will be carried out, considering reversibility criteria, so that the power of the lights does not reach 4,000W.
Fundación Iberdrola and culture
One of Iberdrola’s main areas of action, through its Foundation in Spain, focuses on the care, conservation, and enhancement of historical and artistic wealth. The main objective of the Lighting Program is to develop interventions in unique buildings to install or improve their interior and/or exterior ornamental lighting systems to contribute to the enhancement of heritage.
Since 2011, the volume of investment allocated to the Lighting Program has amounted to more than 3 million euros and has led to the improvement of more than 40 monuments in Spain, including the historic Roman Bridge of Alcántara, in Cáceres; the facade of the Congress of Deputies, in Madrid; the Cathedral of Ávila, or the interior of the New Cathedral of Salamanca.
