Symmetrica will invest over 6 million euros in the development of photovoltaic panel parks in eight of its factories. In this way, the pavers manufacturer is counting on covering a significant part of the electricity consumption necessary for the activity in each unit.
“Sustainability is one of Symmetrica’s key goals, and investing in photovoltaic panel parks came as a natural step in our development. In fact, the surfaces purchased for the construction of our factories were from the beginning designed to accommodate the installation of such green energy production systems”, said Sebastian Bobu, Executive Director of Symmetrica. “We will end this year with photovoltaic parks located in 8 of our factories and we estimate that we will thus cover, for each work point, approx. 80% of energy consumption from own sources.”
Each of the photovoltaic parks developed by the company will be located on an area of approx. 10,000 sqm, it will have an installed power of 520 KW and will be able to produce around 620,000 kWh of clean electricity per year, equivalent to the annual consumption of around 200 households. The photovoltaic panels to be installed are mono-crystalline, with an efficiency of 84.8%. In total, all 8 locations will add up to approx. 10,000 solar panels installed.
