AMAZONE - USA
Solar power systems
Our solar power systems enable us to use large roof areas to generate electricity for our own consumption. We deliberately do not do this on open spaces, as these are better used for agricultural purposes and large roofs are suitable for solar systems in any case.
An electrical output of max. 2,500 kWp is achieved with the five realised solar power plants.
Generating energy ourselves:
We produce 5 million kW/h of electricity per year through our combined heat and power plants and solar power systems at the Hasbergen-Gaste, Hude-Altmoorhausen, Bramsche, Leeden and Leipzig plants.
More than 200 measures have been implemented via the activities of AMAZONE Energy Management in the last five years.
These measures involved investments of more than €1.6 million, which have now saved more than 12 million kWh. These large energy savings not only avoid the use of fossil fuels, and therefore CO2, but also result in cost savings of more than €2.8 million. Sustainable environmental protection and cost optimisation are not a contradiction in terms and benefit everyone.
The savings correspond to the energy requirements of 3,000 3-person households per year.
