Are you one of those who think that photovoltaic energy installations can only be placed on the roofs of buildings? Well, that's not entirely true.
Although until now the most common was to find solar panels on rooftops, there are interesting solutions that allow to make profitable underutilized spaces within farms and processing plants thanks to customized projects like the ones we do in Ingenia Solar Energy (ISE).
The key to these projects is to preserve the advantages offered by the more traditional self-consumption and give it an added value: to make the most of existing structures within the company's facilities or unused passageways. This is the case of photovoltaic canopies, solutions that make it possible to enclose or roof parking spaces with solar modules that produce shade and clean energy at the same time.
In addition to electricity to facilitate the activity of the company, and even allow the dumping of surplus production to the grid, the canopies can be equipped with charging points for electric vehicles. This is a plus for employees, customers and visitors, who can plug in their cars while they are on the premises.
Another area where solar modules can be installed in an agricultural company is the roof of greenhouses. In this case, the photovoltaic structure is adapted to the greenhouse roof after a prior feasibility study in which we determine aspects such as the number of modules or which fixings should be used.
The surface of the greenhouses and their location, in sunny areas rarely affected by shadows from nearby buildings, make them perfect solutions to host a photovoltaic self-consumption project that facilitates savings on the electricity bill and allows the company to position itself as sustainable and environmentally friendly.
At ISE we take care of the entire process to create the most efficient self-consumption installations, from the project design to the operation and maintenance tasks to ensure maximum productivity during its useful life.
If you want to save and produce your own energy by investing in a project with a payback period of only 3 years, contact us and we will advise you on the best solar self-consumption solution for your industry.
