COLORNO, Italy – November 19, 2012 – The completion and running of the new production building, which took place as planned at the beginning of September, saw the simultaneous commissioning of the photovoltaic system installed on the roof of the new buildings.

This plant, which consists of 800 photovoltaic modules of about 250Wp/each, has a peak power equal to 200kW.
The installation of photovoltaic modules and up to date inverters, together with a cover design aimed at optimizing the performance, will lead to an expected annual production of energy equal to 230MWh (230.000kWh); the significant investment of the  installation has a payback period estimated in 6 years.
Considering the current consumption the amount of energy produced covers about one fifth of the annual electric energy needs of the company. Considering the usable life of the PV system is 30 years (due to the high quality standards of components and installation) as well as a conservative  annual performance decay of 1%, related to the physiological deterioration of the components, it is estimated a cumulative performance during the 30th year as follows:

  • Total energy produced: 5987 MWh
  • CO2 emissions saved: 3173 tons
  • TEP spared: 1120 TOE (Tons of Oil Equivalent)

It is our responsibility to respect the environment in which we live and this facility represents a further step in this direction.
